Write Right - Wednesday February 7th 2018

Write right poster

SLD came together with Trinity College lecturers, Library staff, SU, S2S and S2S peer mentors to produce a programme of talks and workshops aimed at helping undergraduate students to improve their assignment writing.

A panel of college lecturers from different disciplines, talked about what they look for in assignments, common mistakes students make and how students can improve their assignment writing. This was followed by a very lively question and answer session where students asked questions regarding assignments.

Later sessions covered workshops on topics 'Structuring assignments', 'Developing content, building arguments', 'Plagiarism/Referencing' and 'Improving your writing' plus more.

Feedback from students included :

'I would love to have gone to these lectures years ago...a must for undergrad students' - TSM student

'Truly eye opening. I feel really privileged to have this opportunity' - Science student

'As an Erasmus student, it was very heplful'

'This should be compulsory for JF students.' - Law student
