Learning objectives

By the end of this module you will have the skills to:

  • understand different types of assignments and identify key requirements for an assignment task
  • use lecture and tutorial notes, subject guides and QUT Readings to gather basic information about an assignment topic
  • identify different types of scholarly and non-scholarly information.

Before you begin your research, it is important that you understand what the task requires. Start by asking:

  • What do I need to know about my assignment?
  • What do I need to know about my topic?
  • What do I need to know about different information sources?

Gathering this information together in one place will help you be more organised.
