Research Skills for Business


Gordon Billingsley

What You Will Learn

In this age of information overload, it can be hard to know where to find good information that you can trust. If you're doing research for an important project, report, or proposal, how do you find information that you can count on? This course will teach you how to research any topic using a number of different tools. We will start with basic techniques, such as reading, memory recall, note-taking, and planning. We will also talk about creating different kinds of outlines for different stages of your project, and how to move from the outline to actual writing, editing, and polishing. Most importantly, we will talk about how to use all kinds of sources. After you complete this course, you'll be ready to find reliable information on any topic and turn that information into a compelling, accurate piece of writing. This course is part of the Professional Assistant Certificate.
