Please note that this workshop has been revised to run in an online format of webinar followed by individual 1-to-1 sessions.
What kind of feedback really helps you improve what you have written? How does feedback on your writing make you feel? Many writers are familiar with the emotions feedback can provoke - pride and disappointment, delight and despair, soaring happiness and blind rage. This one hour presentation on Zoom, followed by Q&A explores effective ways of giving and receiving feedback and suggests tips to improve researchers' confidence in supervisions. After the presentation (09.30 - 11.00) there are 6 bookable one-to-one consultation slots, to discuss any related issues.
This workshop will be run by Anne Wilson. Anne has a background in journalism (features) and corporate communication (scripts, speeches, screen media copy), combining her writing with facilitating writing workshops in HE. She was Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Brunel University for three years, and now runs workshops on academic writing and professional communication for postgraduates and staff at Brunel and other universities. She also coaches students for the 3MT competition (won by Brunel in 2017). She has recently collaborated with the Brunel Occupational Therapy department to investigate what kind of feedback helps students to improve their academic writing.
