Bridging the Gap: transitions in student writing
- Hope Park Campus, Liverpool Hope University
- 10 June 2009 10:00-17:00
The Flying Start NTFS Project will be hosting a large cross-sector symposium in collaboration with the Write Now and Learnhigher CETLs at Liverpool Hope. The symposium is entitled: 'Bridging the Gap: transitions in student writing, a symposium'
This is an event for educators interested in supporting and developing students’ academic writing through the transition from further to higher Education.
Across all sectors of education and in almost all disciplines writing, in its many forms, is at the heart of learning and assessment. However, developing and utilising this skill is something that many students find difficult and this often becomes particularly apparent at the juncture between further and higher education as students are presented with new teaching and learning styles and find very different expectations and assessment criteria placed upon them. This symposium will consider ways of easing this transition.
