Paraphrase Like a Pro: How to Successfully “Use Your Own Words”

Do you ever find it hard to “use your own words” when conveying someone else’s ideas? Do you find yourself unsure how (and even when) to paraphrase? This workshop will help you to consider the expectations of your audience or discipline as you adopt specific paraphrasing techniques to work with material from any source (articles, books, and more). Whether you’re new to researched writing or just need a review, put that thesaurus down and come join us for hands-on practice! This workshop is open to undergraduates and graduate students working on all types of research-based writing.

Access the workshop presentation in Kaltura Mediaspace.
