This Week in the Library – Week 2


this-week-in-the-library

So you’ve been given an assignment question and you have no idea what to do next (curling up in the foetal position and moaning is obvs the first thing; after that, though).

You should attend the Analysing assignment questions workshop held on Monday and Wednesday this week. This workshop will focus on interpreting the assignment question to understand the requirements of the task. The session will also cover guidelines for narrowing the topic, applying the assessment criteria and initial assignment planning. You know, all the stuff you need to get started on that assignment.

Library and Learning Services workshops are FREE and available to all students, HDR candidates and staff. To view the entire workshop timetable, please visit the Workshops and Training web page.
