Meeting an academic expectation

A student readingWhen you read for academic study you will find that there are different opinions on one subject. Which opinion are you meant to rely on and incorporate in your writing? This workshop will provide you with strategies you can use to question what you read.

In this 2-hour workshop we focus on:

  • How do you read effectively, purposefully, interactively and critically?
  • What questions can you ask before, while and after you read?
  • What role does the use of the author's language play in your understanding of the text?
  • How can the tips in this workshop also help you improve your writing?
