Assignment Clinic

Over the summer break students are invited to email a marked assignment, with lecturer feedback, to Academic Study Skills to receive guidance and support in areas that need it.

 

Also, if you are writing an assignment we can provide advice on a draft of up to three pages in length (double spaced, 12pt font).

 

 

Students can choose to receive support in one of the following ways:

 

A phone call

A skype call

An email

A visit to study skills in person

 

Common areas may include:

 

Referencing

Critical analysis

Structure

Academic language

 

Please email l.a.edwards@glyndwr.ac.uk  and attach your marked assignment with lecturer feedback.

 

 

Session: Proofreading and Plagiarism

Proofreading – improve your own skills.

Asking other people to check work before it is submitted does not help to develop independent learning skills. Developing proofreading skills will help to overcome this.

 

Plus:

 

Plagiarism – what it is and how to avoid it.

Asking other people to check work before it is submitted does not help to develop independent learning skills. Developing proofreading skills will help to overcome this

Plagiarism is committed when other people help them to write their assignments, even if it is only an occasional paragraph. Plagiarism is also committed when referencing is not used correctly.
