Teaching and Learning Strategies

Teaching Method 1 - Tutorial
Description: Writing workshop
Attendance Recorded: Yes
Notes: Tutorials are generally split between examining the work of others (e.g. highly-regarded examples of well-written poetry) and examining the work of students (workshopping). Each week students submit work which is then circulated to the class and reviewed during the tutorial. By this means students can get used to writing for an audience and to responding to feedback.
