If you have ever had a question you wanted to ask about research and were too afraid to ask, or can’t find the answer despite doing your own research, or would just like an expert opinion on some research you are either undertaking or thinking of undertaking.. this is the webinar for you.

We will be hosting the webinar in the Dialogue Café, based in the Library at Park Avenue Campus.  After the first hour those in attendance will be able to split into groups to discuss various topics brought up during the course of the webinar.
