Speed reading

Information literacy and management largely comes under Domain A of the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) - Knowledge Base.

Acquiring speed reading and information management skills typically allows researchers to increase their subject and methodological knowledge quickly and efficiently. The information in this section is adapted from original material developed by Margaret Greenhall of Inspirachange Training Solutions, and is reproduced with permission by The University of Manchester for use with students.

Speed reading is about two things - technique and strategy. Speed reading techniques should be acquired and practiced regularly and attention should also be paid to creating a reading strategy which complements the research project. This section is divided into two parts, the first concentrates on technique, the second on strategy.
