Objectives:

The purpose of this workshop is to experience and to work on a mockup paper to simulate the real research writing process using Google Docs along with Zotero software to get ready the paper for submission.

The Problem

Approaches for conducting research, from identifying the research problem to reporting findings, has evolved using different online tools and technology when working collaboratively. Online tools enabled researchers to work together in remote settings. However, choosing among the various tools can be quite overwhelming for most faculty members due to the wide use area and technical difficulties to decide which works the best for the research.


My Approach

The purpose of this workshop is to experience and to work on a mockup paper to simulate the real research writing process using Google Docs along with Zotero software to get ready the paper for submission. I will be facilitating this hands on workshop to help participants to learn and develop skills on online collaborative research tools, from literature search to ready to submit paper while working together.
