Academic Integrity Workshop

Learning how to use and cite visual and textual sources can be challenging. This workshop provides clarity around how sources can be used, why they should be documented, and how to document them appropriately. It will introduce you to some practical strategies for tracking your visual and textual research, reading, note-taking and paraphrasing that can help you effectively integrate your research into your writing and making processes.

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
MCC 510, 5th floor (113 McCaul Street)
