Study skills workshop
Developing a good academic argument – 22 April 2019

Academic argument, or line of enquiry, is an important skill and some students can struggle to balance critical opinion and evidence. Identifying a solid narrative involves considering the structure of the argument and developing this in a persuasive manner. This interactive workshop would be ideal for those at Levels 2 and 3.

Please note that this workshop is scheduled to start at 19:00 and will last 60 minutes. You will need to book a free ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. Tickets will become available in mid-March 2020.

Study skills workshop

Your end-of-module assessment (EMA) is important both because of the marks it attracts and as a final piece of work that allows you to show your understanding of your complete module. In this interactive workshop we will look at how EMAs differ from TMAs and how to balance a holistic understanding of the overall module and the level of detail that this requires.

Please note that this workshop is scheduled to start at 20:30 and will last 60 minutes. You will need to book a free ticket to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room event. Tickets will become available in mid-April 2020.
