When it comes to improving your work sometimes knowing what to do with your tutor’s feedback is tricky. In this workshop we will discuss some common types of feedback and suggest both quick fixes and ways of making more substantial shifts. Come and discuss study journeys with others from different subjects and levels and pick up new ideas about using feedback.

The session will run twice - from 7 to 8pm and from 8.30 to 9.30pm, and will be held online, in the Student Hub Live online room.

Please note you will need a ticket to attend event. The tickets will become available on 30th January 2019.

The session will run twice - from 7 to 8pm and from 8.30 to 9.30pm, and will be held online, in the Student Hub Live online room.

Catch up

This workshop will focus on essay planning. It is aimed at those already planning but maybe not doing themselves justice with that planning. It will look at how to ensure the essay is aligned with what is being asked for and including the critical information.

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

The slides from the event are available here
