Upcoming events

This writing retreat is for all students (and non-students), studying at any level within any faculty. It is a space to develop writing skills and also to meet other students and academic staff at the Open University.

Each of the 6 workshops are held in the Student Hub Live online room, click here to access, and take place between 8-9pm (room opens at 7.45pm) on Wednesday evenings. The fifth and sixth sessions are on 25th July and 1st August and are about editing.

We finish on perhaps ones of the biggest ones, editing your work. In part 1 we’ll be looking at the key stages of editing the piece of work you are needing to get through and setting you the task of going away and doing the task. In part 2 we’ll be looking at how you have got on and what worked, and what hasn’t gone as well.

Catch up

This writing retreat was for all students (and non-students), studying at any level within any faculty. It was a space to develop writing skills and also to meet other students and academic staff at the Open University.

Many types of study look for some specific structured writing, which may include case studies and experiments. These have a recognised formal series of steps that need to be followed along with their own special language at times. We looked at some good examples and showed you what you need to maximise your effectiveness.

Increasingly within academic and employment life there is a need to communicate a message clearly using a visual mechanism, rather than text alone. Posters are used to give a clear snapshot of what’s important, and the art of PowerPoint is certainly not death by a thousand slides!
