Communicating our critical thoughts coherently is a challenging task. What is important is that you are revealing what you are thinking and the connections that you are making based upon what you have learnt. To do this well it is important to reference what you have read. This strategy can help.

Live Synchronous Session

Prior to the workshop starting in full. Darren will say how important the work we are going to do is. Then lets do the following:

Ask the learners to introduce themselves in the chat.

Ask the learners to reflect upon how they approach academic work and to consider where they might need to develop a new approach or a new skill to help them learn effectively.

They can share in the chat if they wish to.
