Understanding your assessment question Trailer

Catch up

Writing academically is a skill that underlies the demonstration of successful learning in higher education but isn’t always thought about for itself. We looked at some of the key features of academic writing and explained how to develop your academic writing skills. We gave a tutor’s impression of what works well when communicating as well as the student viewpoint on how to achieve this.

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.

This event will take several of the key components of an essay and discuss different approaches. Aspects such as ‘describe’, compare and contrast, and critically evaluate will be explored, and we will outline ways to improve your introductions and conclusions. For any student at any level, this series of sessions will give you a space to re-evaluate your own approaches and think about the next academic year. There is also the opportunity to share what works for you with other students in the chat.

The event is online, interactive and open to everyone. The chat room will be open from 9am and during the live event you can send your tweets to @StudentHubLive (#StudentHubLive18), email us at studenthublive@open.ac.uk, complete the online voting tools, send us your comments, and take part in the online discussions.
