Author Talk: Research Makes the Difference

4:00 PM – 5:30 PM


Research skills can lead to success in school and beyond, but many students have questions about where to start. Teens and adults, here's your chance to hear award-winning UBC professor Christopher Rea discuss his recent  book, Where Research Begins: Choosing a Research Project That Matters to You (and the World), co-written with Thomas S. Mullaney. Topics will include: transforming a topic into a set of concrete and compelling questions, finding useful sources, dealing with mental roadblocks, and staying motivated.

This event is for you, if you:

    • have difficulty choosing a research topic
    • feel intimidated by or unqualified to do research
    • feel like your research topic was imposed by someone else
    • want to learn new ways to think about how to do research.

    Learn how to design a research project that interests you, and why research is for everyone.

    This program is suitable for high school and post-secondary students, parents, and anyone interested in research. Best for ages 16+.

    Mask wearing continues to be appreciated and encouraged in our libraries, especially in situations where maintaining personal space can be challenging.
