If you’ve received feedback from an assignment and it wasn't what you expected, don’t worry there’s still plenty of time to develop your skills.
- Make sure you read the feedback carefully. Your tutor will provide you with constructive comments to help improve your work and progress in the future.
You can then identify the academic skills you need to develop. Skills for Learning run workshops and also webinars (online workshops) to help with a range of academic skills, including essay writing, critical thinking, dissertations, referencing and literature reviews. The Skills for Learning website also has lots of resources which you can work through independently to develop your skills.
- Your Academic Librarian is also available to help with literature searching and finding information as well as plagiarism and referencing queries. Take a look at their online subject guides for more information.
So, why not make one of your New Year resolutions to get the most out of your time whilst you’re studying with us, and what you need to do to put this into action. But do remember, even if your first pieces of work didn't go according to plan, there’s plenty of time to brush up on your academic skills, and lots of people available to help you achieve this.
We’d love to hear from you!
