Research on the use of drafts as formative teaching tools has generally shown the experience to be positive in terms of its potential to feed forward, and improving outcomes and learning. This study takes increasing academic workload into consideration, as well as demand for independent and critical thinking, in its exploration of the effectiveness of different kinds of partial drafts; in undergraduate English literature modules.

Refreshments will be available from 12.15pm and the seminar will start at 12.30pm. There will be time for discussion after the seminar for those who are able to stay.
