One of the biggest mistakes tutors see is lovely answers that aren’t related to the question being asked. In this interactive SHL session we looked at how to interpret assessment questions to try and avoid this. We looked at the wording used and give a tutor insight into what this means when we come to mark, as well as the obvious mistakes that we see. We discussed different process words (the instructions that are given) and signpost useful resources to find out more. 

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.

We finished on perhaps ones of the biggest ones, editing your work. In part 1 we looked at the key stages of editing the piece of work you are need to get through and set you the task of going away and doing the task. In part 2 we looked at how you got on and what worked, and what didn’t go as well.

If you are unable to join us, you can catch up at any time.

The slides from the event are available here.

Writing academically is a skill that underlies the demonstration of successful learning in higher education but isn’t always thought about for itself. In this interactive SHL session we will look at some of the key features of academic writing and explain how to develop your academic writing skills. We’ll give a tutor’s impression of what works well when communicating as well as the student viewpoint on how to achieve this. There will be plenty of opportunity for interaction and small group sessions to discuss what is being talked about and learn from your fellow students.The event runs twice - from 7 to 8pm and from 8.30 to 9.30pm.

This event is run in the SHL online room and is open to all students. To attend, you must book a ticket, which are allocated on a first come first served basis. To book on the 7 to 8pm session click here, to book on the 8.30 to 9.30pm session click 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.
