Research skills and developing ideas

If you are writing assignments or reports, or completing a project, you may have to undertake some research first. Here are some short interactive modules from the NLN that give you some help with this:

  • improving research skills - tips for more effective research; being clear on the topic, keeping focussed & being organised. (Level 2)
  • critical thinking - what this means and how to use it in different circumstances. (Level 2)
  • developing ideas - developing a thought map to group ideas and to organise them for a your particular purpose. (Level 1)
