Searching to Find: Improving Your Online Search Skills (Virtual Course)

Open enrolment and in-house options available

The average knowledge worker spends up to 20 per cent of their time looking for information they can't find. That's one day a week of lost productivity for every employee in your organisation - time that could be spent reading, learning or generating value.

Improving your open source research skills is the easiest way to get ahead. While others are searching, you could be finding, reading, analysing, communicating and acting on the insights at hand. This webinar will show you how.

We will walk you through a series of tools and strategies to enhance your online research skills. We'll introduce you to the frameworks you can use to map the right keywords, construct the right queries, and harvest the right resources.

There are currently no dates planned for this course. You can register your interest for future dates or enquire about in-house options.
