In collaboration with the Research Methods faculty, the Center for Academic Success (CfAS) has developed a new pilot program for students enrolled in Research Methods I and II. These workshops are dedicated to strengthening students’ skills in critical reading, statistics, and APA formatting. Some sessions will be applicable to research Methods I while other sessions will be applicable to Research Methods II. Please review the topics below to see which is suitable for your needs. 

You can choose one, two, or choose to visit them all! Please read the expectations of the workshops before registering below.

Workshop Expectations

  1. Be prepared. Bring your textbook, syllabus, laptop and any pertinent materials related to the pace of the course. Rough drafts and data sets will be extremely helpful.
  2. Be on time. Sessions are one hour in length. The tutors need all of this time in order to provide each participant with the necessary attention and detail to his/her progress.
  3. Be responsible. Once you register for a workshop at the Center for Academic Success (CfAS) you are reserving a place that no other student can take. Be considerate with these workshops. Keep your Panther ID handy when you arrive. You must enter your information at the front area of the center. Make sure that your tutor records your attendance. At the end of the semester these records will be submitted to your professor.
  4. This is the first semester we are servicing both Research Methods I and II students.  We would like as much feedback as possible respective to whether this is helping your understanding of the course.
