Teachers

In addition to our resources for high school students, teachers can organise on-campus workshops for students in years 10 to 12, and access a range of educational resources and collections.

Workshops

QUT Librarians deliver workshops designed to help high school students acquire the research and study skills they need for current and future studies. Our team specialises in finding, evaluating and referencing information for academic study.

Researching for assignments
Knowledge and skills to support effective researching

This session will provide school groups with knowledge and skills to support effective researching.

Students will explore strategies, techniques and tools to find relevant resources for their assignments. Working collaboratively, students will identify keywords in a topic, create a search strategy and apply search techniques to find articles, books and more in the QUT Library collection.

Researching for legal studies (Law Library)
