Upcoming events

One of the most important skills in Higher Education is using an academic voice. This means being objective, presenting your arguments with evidence and adopting an appropriate tone. In this session we will discuss how to effectively employ tone, tense, voice and structure to enhance an effective writing style. The workshop will focus on the craft of writing in a variety of formats and will complement the essay writing workshops that will be run in the autumn.  

 

You will need to book a free ticket to attend this event, please register here.

As a student you are told to be objective, to use module information but you are also expected to write in your own words and use critical skills to create your own argument. Understanding and achieving that balance can be difficult. In this session we will provide guidance and ideas on how to marry these up to deliver a coherent and cohesive piece of writing. This workshop focuses on the narrative part of an essay, and will complement the other essay writing workshops in this summer series as well as those planned for the autumn.

At level 2 and 3 in particular, students are often mindful of end of module assessments whether they are exams, dissertations, extended essays or EMAs. On approaching those critical times, many students wish they had started to plan earlier, or prioritise their work more effectively. In this workshop we discuss how to use guidance from the module team to prioritise key skills and areas of content so that you can prepare as effectively as possible. We also discuss how to research and revisit relevant content over the summer. Please note that these are generic workshops and advice for specific modules is not given.

Catch up

Have you ever thought you’d written a cracking answer, and then not got the grade you expected and then realised or been told why? Answering the question that is being asked and delivering on the skills that are required in the right way is crucial. It is very common to prioritise content over the application of key skills like evaluation or comparison, and in this workshop we focus on how to use the guidance you have been provided with to understand not just what to include, but how to do it effectively, economically, and a the right level of detail.

The workshop is available to watch/catch-up here (click on 'view previous recordings' button). The group work and plenary were not recorded. 

The slides from the event are available here.

Qualifications are designed to build on key skills and knowledge, and it is very likely that your next module will require you to use similar skills and formats that you have already experienced. It is common to move from one task to the next and not always reflect on learning when you do not need to repeat a type of activity in the near future. When you approach a similar task again, it may be that you forget to look over feedback from previous years, or find that there simply isn't time. In this session we include suggestions about how you can use the time in the summer to consolidate your learning and plan how you can best approach similar tasks in the future.

How often do you reach the end of your module and say “I wish I’d managed my time better, read my feedback more often and not kept making the same mistakes”? In this session we’ll focus on how to break some of those learned behaviours and help you deliver on your early promise. This workshop will include practical activities designed to facilitate reflection on your own learning, share and receive ideas that work with other students and to put a personal plan in place.   

The workshop is available to watch/catch-up here (click on 'view previous recordings' button). The group work and plenary were not recorded.
