Course Spotlight: Applied Genealogical Methods Workshop: Hands-on Skillbuilding

Have you ever wanted to take your methodology skills to the next level through practice? Do you want to engage in an institute course with your own research? SLIG's new course Applied Genealogical Methods Workshop: Hands-On Skillbuilding is a unique opportunity to expand intermediate methodology skills through a blend of lectures and instructor-led exercises.

Continue your Skillbuilding Journey

This course is designed to be incorporated into the continuum of SLIG's core methodology offerings. Intermediate students who have taken courses like SLIG's virtual Intermediate Foundations or possess that skill level will thrive in this hands-on learning environment. In-depth focus and practice will be given to students interacting directly with documents in class to expand skills such as writing source citations, research planning, evidence analysis, and resolving conflicting information. The final session of this class will help students create a skillbuilding action plan to continue to develop skills in the future.

Personal Research Application

An integral part of the experience of this course will include a continuing homework assignment throughout the week. This project will allow students to write a complete report for their own research, incorporating skills learned during the week. In addition to the opportunity to utilize your own family history, the course coordinator, Michael G. Hait, CG, will be providing personal feedback on reports to help students gain even more from their experience.

The full schedule for this course, faculty bios, and course details can be found here.
