In this Workshop we will be drawing on published papers to discover what makes a good literature review in terms of, for example, consensus of view, current debate and controversies and ‘state of the art. If you are either planning or writing a literature review this is a good opportunity for you to discuss your text or plans and exchange ideas about how we go about finding relevant literature and organizing this important section.
- To develop students’ awareness of the reader’s aims
- To write in a clearer and more concise way in order to communicate ideas successfully
- To Inform you about what it means to be a successful writer and the importance of context (e.g. who is your reader, what are your assumptions about their knowledge of the topic?)
- Workshops are ‘hands-on’ where students work with, and edit text from a variety of sources relevant to their specialist field.
- Students’ work-in-progress and papers they are reading are used wherever possible to develop their awareness of good writing and critical ability.
- Students are encouraged to work in groups and share ideas- from student feedback on these workshops, it has been noted that peer feedback was found to play a key role in their success.
