Research Workshop – Caroline Molloy
On Tuesday 5th March 2013, we had an hour long workshop discussing the skill of research. Within this workshop we debated a number of questions before moving on to marking each others project research. Below are the notes that I took from this session:

- Collection of relevant information
- Understanding of context
- Primary and secondary
When do you do research?
- At the start of the project
- When an idea is established
- As the project develops
Why do you do research?
- Inform the project
It is a skill that can be applied to day-to-day life
