Dialogue with Dr.Dawn Guthrie on how to read Research Papers

Let’s face it, even if you are an avid reader, reading research papers is a skill that is rarely taught unless you are an academic researcher.  Community of Practice on Deafblindness is starting reading club which aims to publicize an important research document in the field of deafblindness by holding a lively discussion around the document during which members are invited to interact with a perspective of sharing knowledge and improving practices.

In its first webinar and dialogue with Dr.Guthrie, you will learn about: .

What are research articles/manuscripts?

Why we read research articles and its importance/application to practitioners’ professional knowledge?

How to approach reading a scientific/research article?

What is the step-by-step process of reading key elements of the articles in a systematic manner effectively and efficiently?
