Making information inclusive (Online)

Making information inclusive (Online) Online



Have you ever considered whose voices can and cannot be heard in your assignments and research? Or what impact referencing has on the people you are citing? This interactive session is designed to demonstrate the value of good information-sharing principles in both academia and your personal life for the purposes of promoting marginalised voices and making information more accessible.  We will reflect on how you engage with information and help you find ways to share your work according to best information-sharing practice.

Key areas covered

  • Explore why citing diverse sources is important
  • Understand the value of good information-sharing principles
  • Reflect on how you engage with information in different settings

Supporting resources

  • Prepare by checking out the Skills at Library 'Sharing information' pages 
  • Workshop activity: Find out more about the authors behind the 6 sources you've previously found, or use the list provided (available via Moodle)
  • Consider where and how you might want to share your work and to what audience - a blog, LinkedIn profile, publish in a journal - such as the Essex Student Journal


Essex students: book your place here!

We encourage students to book onto our workshops via CareerHub in order to keep a record of their learning.
