Commission a session
Request provision specifically designed for a group of your students or researchers
Commission a session for your students
Would you like your students to improve how they communicate in assessments such as lab reports, literature reviews, dissertations, presentations or vivas?
You can commission us to design a task-based academic writing or speaking workshop based on your assessment guidelines, marking criteria and student writing samples. Such a workshop aims to raise students’ awareness of how to respond to your guidelines and enable them to communicate more clearly and critically in the assessment.
Commission a session for your research group
Would you like your research group to write and publish more effectively? Would you like them to present more effectively at conferences?
We can design a task-based workshop which enables them to communicate their research with impact and in alignment with communication norms in their field. Such a workshop is tailored to the research focus of the participants, and the content and activities are designed based on recent communication in high-impact journals and other communication channels in their field. You can also commission 1:1 feedback on the participants’ own writing or presentation.
