Good academic practice refers to the process of completing your academic work independently, honestly and in an appropriate academic style, using good referencing and acknowledging all of your sources. Achieving good academic practice involves: developing your own independent evaluation of academic issues; drawing upon research from academics in your field of study; discussing and evaluating existing concepts and theories; demonstrating your understanding of the key literature; developing your own arguments.

In this online interactive event from 10am to 3pm, we will touch upon all these elements, as well as considering some of the key study skills that you will need to master to progress successfully in your studies.

Event Image: ‘Research, teaching and you’ from FASS

On Thursday 3 May the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) will be hosting a live and interactive event to highlight, explore and discuss some of the exciting research that takes place in FASS. Discussions will include a variety of topics as well as how this research informs OU teaching and your learning.

We will be joined by leading researchers from Psychology, Economics, Geography and Politics, who will be discussing a range of topics including ‘Digital Mothering’ and relationships; how History, Religious Studies, Social Policy and Criminology investigate and reconstruct patterns and flows of ‘power’ and ‘belief’; how different people interact with objects, music, literature, and the classical world through the Digital Humanities; and understanding how space, place and gender work to frame the relationships and behaviour between people, organisations and states.

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 studenthub@open.ac.uk, complete the online voting tools, send us your comments, and take part in the online discussions.
