Information Skills: About this guide

Courses on information skills

The information specialists from the HAN Study and Multimedia Centres run tailor-made courses on information skills. The content of this guide is then linked to the specific research assignments on which the students are working at the time.

We provide training for all academic years, because supervision needs change gradually during the degree course. In the first two academic years, students are given training on basic skills, knowledge of the sources and on how to think critically when using and re-using information. In the final year, the supervision focuses more on graduation research, with an emphasis on citing sources correctly and using reference management tools.

More information about the training we provide can be found at the website of the HAN Study and Multimedia Centres, under Course offerings.
