Preparing for, and producing your best EMA

End-of-module assessments (EMAs) are important not only because of the marks they attract but also as a final piece of work that allows you to demonstrate your comprehension of a completed module. In this interactive workshop we will look at how EMAs differ from TMAs and how to show your understanding at an appropriate level of detail.
