When reviewing my semester in SW3401H, I am thankful for the new information I have obtained for implementing research methods. I have developed a strong knowledge base for how to obtain research through using online data bases with peer-reviewed works. This does not only help me as a student because it is an important skill to master when entering the professional field of Social Work. I am confident I have developed the skills to critically read research and decipher if the data being presented is credible. I also feel that becoming more familiar with peer-reviewed papers has helped to improve my own writing skills. While, I will admit, the course content could be a bit dry at times, but I feel this course has made me become a stronger student.
