Thinking through the Lit Review: Characterize the Problem, Map the Gap and Stake your Claims

Presented by: Bridget O’Brien, PhD

Location: T-229, Pacific Room, UW Health Sciences Library, Seattle

RSVP: (In-Person Attendance only): Space is limited! Breakfast will be provided.

Description: Scholarly writers know the literature review is a critical part of a paper, but few write their literature review to achieve its full potential. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the purpose of the literature review and a framework to help you use the literature effectively.  I will share resources and strategies for mapping the gap and staking knowledge claims. We will practice using these resources by working through an example from a published study.

Target Audience: Educators in the Health Professions (especially in Health Professions Education)
