ONLINE & PARTICIPATIVE: Revision Workshop: Strategies for Editing & Revising your dissertation (REPEAT)

 

About this workshop

This workshop aims to present post graduate students at all levels of their work with understanding the role and purpose of feedback; both peer and supervisory and ways in which to incorporate comments and feedback within the revising and editing stages of academic writing. The focus of the workshop is in getting to grips with the editing and revising writing processes.  Strategies for building confidence through exposure to writing devices and techniques, paragraphing, sentence structure and grammar form part of what students can expect during the session.
