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


About this workshop

This online workshop aims to present junior post graduate students with understanding the role and purpose of feedback, both peer and supervisory.  The focus of the workshop is in getting to grips with the editing and revising writing process, and aims to provide students with strategies for integrating feedback, as well as techniques to confidently review paragraphing, sentence structure and grammar for clarity, simplicity, and completeness.


What previous attendees have said about this workshop:

  • "I have so many things especially the small things that most of us we ignore or pay less attention."
  • "I am currently working on my proposal, so this course is important as it has the fundamental ideas I need towards my writing and I grasped a lot that will help me in the process."
  • "I have learned so much about academic writing and what is expected from a master's candidate."
