Next assignment due? Are you putting it off?

correcting-1870721__340Starting a new piece of written work can sometimes be quite daunting. One of the most important stages is to develop a clear assignment plan.

You might find a printable chart a useful tool to help you on your way. The Bridge website has an editable Word document (along with tips for using it). Just look under Resources where you’ll find loads more top tips and guides.

Alternatively  why not come along to an Assignment Planning Forum?

Collegiate – Friday 20th Jan 9am

Adsetts – Tuesday 24th Jan 10am

The forums are designed to help you get started with a new assignment. These informal, small group sessions will allow you to test out your initial ideas & approaches, and help you to generate your draft assignment plan, all under the guidance of the Academic Skills Tutor.

All you need to do is to bring along your assignment question & assessment criteria on a USB stick and you will have the opportunity to discuss your initial ideas with the other participants and the tutor.

The sessions are bookable on Unihub, via the Bridge website and are designed to complement our Writing Forums.
