Whether you’ve completed your first or twenty-first assignment, it’s a good idea to reflect on what you did, and what you might do differently next time. Primarily aimed at Access and Level 1 students, this interactive workshop will look at how you planned and completed your assignment as well as how to take on board and make the most of feedback. 

Please note that this workshop is scheduled to start at 19pm and will last 60 minutes. You will need a ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. You can book your free ticket here.

Time management is the most common challenge for OU students who are often juggling other responsibilities alongside their studies. In this workshop we’ll provide you with some time management techniques and frameworks that may help you to manage your time more effectively. We’ll also discuss strategies that other students have used, and you’ll have the chance to talk to other students in small groups about how to apply some of these ideas to your own situation.

Please note that this workshop is scheduled to start at 19:00pm and will last 60 minutes. You will need a ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. Tickets will become available during the last week in November.

This workshop builds on the planning session and will cover the drafting and editing process of essay writing. Often you might know what you want to say but aren’t able to get everything in within the word count, or are unclear on the order to put information. We’ll cover some of the key points of good essays and help you to think about what works and how you can weave your evidence into a great essay.

Please note that this workshop is scheduled to start at 20:30pm and will last 60 minutes. You will need a ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. Tickets will become available during the last week in November.

Critical thinking is a key skill in higher education and involves evaluating and weighing up information as well as considering how well it explains a concept or is fit for purpose – and then writing about this. The benefits of developing your critical thinking and writing skills include being able to show why you have included something and demonstrating a good level of understanding. We’ll explain some of the things that tutors look for which evidence this, as well as some of the indicators that this is not being done.

Please note you will need a ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. 

This workshop will be held online twice. Please book your free ticket for workshop from 11 am to 12 pm here and for workshop from 7 pm to 8 pm here
