As a graduate student, you are expected to read widely and critically: to learn about your chosen discipline, to frame your own research, and to discuss ideas. This 2-hour workshop will give you some of the tools and strategies you need to become an efficient, effective reader.

Workshop Prep: Please bring a brief research article that is pertinent to your discipline.

Learning Outcomes: After this workshop, students will understand what it means to read with purpose and how to read actively. Students will acquire tools and strategies to apply to their own reading in support of purposeful, active reading.
