Employability Points and Individual Academic Writing Support

Are you an international student looking to top up your Employability Points and receive free academic language and writing support?

Sophia Vänttinen-Newton, the In-sessional and Short Courses Manager in the Centre for English and World Languages warmly invites you take part in her research study which will explore student reactions to written academic assignment feedback in credit-bearing modules

Her study aims to explore what students think about written assignment feedback from tutors and what you think about the quality of the marking. Your participation in the study will involve you looking at and reading feedback for a written assignment and then answering a series of short questions via Survey Monkey (open, closed and multiple choice questions) about the tutor feedback you have read.

Completing the tasks in the study will take you 45 minutes to an hour and you may be contacted after the study to clarify any answers provided on the Survey Monkey questionnaire. Any of your data in the study will, of course, be anonymised. If you are interested in taking part, further details a bout participation will be sent to you before you commit.

If you would like to take part in the study, you will receive 5 Employability Points and if you would like academic writing support and some help with your coming written assignments, you are more than welcome to book in for a free 30 minute Individual Writing Tutorial at a convenient time with me after completing the study to talk one-to-one about your writing.

Please contact Sophia Vänttinen-Newton at sophia.van.newton@gmail.com  if you would like to take part in the study or you have any questions.
