Digital Research Projects

Evaluating Quantitative, Qualitative, and Subjective Sources

Julie Collins-Dogrul (Sociology) developed an activity for her “Crime, Justice, and Rebellion” course that gives students the opportunity to search and find reputable research, mine databases, and produce work that evaluates their sources and asks how each informs or critiques the other. She found the databases for her students and planned a three-part assignment around them. Model your own assignment after her example.
