CTSI Workshop for Supervisors: Preparing Students for Successful Systematic and Scoping Reviews – June 18, 2020

Session Description

June 18 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This 2-hour interactive online workshop is designed for faculty who supervise students undertaking knowledge synthesis (KS) projects such as systematic reviews or scoping reviews. These are complex research studies, and students often lack clarity in what type of review is best for the question, the methodological considerations of the review itself, and the workflow logistics that are required for these kinds of projects to be successful.

The goal of this workshop is to prepare supervisors to support and instruct their students taking on this kind of work, including: predict which aspects students will struggle with; identify what shortcuts to take, when necessary, and how to justify them; choose workflow tools to increase efficiency; and ultimately, supervise students so that their reviews are conducted appropriately and reported according to guidelines.
