  • Do you worry about committing plagiarism in your written assignments?
  • Do you not usually make notes when you read, or find that your notes are not comprehensible or useful when you look back on them later?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop may be helpful. Using sources in your essays is imperative for success at university.

This workshop will consider effective note-making techniques and tips, so that you make notes you can actually use and avoid potential issues of plagiarism when writing assignments.
