Learning how to form and support your argument with reputable scholarly resources is an
integral component to undertaking a research project and writing a research paper. The CURA
Workshop “Evaluating Credibility: Sources for Academic Research” will teach students the
purpose of and how to undertake a literature review, find and evaluate relevant sources to include
in the literature review, and how to embed sources into their papers to build a strong argument.
Through hands-on activities, students will learn how to critically analyze a source for credibility,
where the information they find is coming from, who is producing the knowledge and for whom
it is written. Students will learn the importance of intersectional representation in the sources
they use to support their arguments. It is not required to have attended a previous CURA
Workshop. Attendees will receive an electronic badge upon completion of the workshop.
