The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.
Literature Searching and the Literature Review is an online course developed by the Researcher Academy and Libraries for postgraduate researchers who are working on a literature review for their thesis. It has been designed to support your success in writing your literature review, from discovering the literature to creating a writing plan.
The course is designed for you to follow at your own pace at a time that suits you. You will be assessed on your submission of a portfolio document, which you will fill in at each stage of the course. Training points and certificates of completion will be awarded once all of the activities have been completed, videos watched, and a full portfolio submitted. We hope that the portfolio will help you and your supervisor in the planning of your own literature review.
