Research Guide

"To write a successful technical report you have to perform smart research. By the end of your WatPD course, you will understand differences between primary and secondary research. You will know how to recognize and utilize academic research. You’ll be able to research ethically and honestly while citing correctly. You’ll know how to synthesize research – critically reinterpreting it and folding it into your report. And you’ll know how to use research to connect workplace and academic contexts. This Guide offers you terrific resources to accomplish all of these goals."  -WatPD
