I am starting the Research Trail assignment, which is the concluding part of the OCA course, An Introduction to Studying in HE (Higher Education).
For this assignment, I am going to research a topic of my choosing. As I progress, I am going to document my research using my learning log. This documentation will detail how I am conducting my research, as well as what I find—including and information about my sources.
Once I have explored a sufficient amount of material, I am going to select and then document six pieces of information that I consider essential for someone who wants to understand my chosen artist.
Finally, I am going to write a self-evaluation.
I plan to complete this assignment in two weeks, i.e., by February 27.
I hope to apply some of the skills I have learned over the duration of this course. I hope to gain some experience doing academic research. I also hope to gain some experience—and confidence—using my learning log and writing self-evaluations.
