We’re almost done with the assessment period (at least the students – the lecturers are busy marking, moderating and commenting on your efforts).
Whether you had to write a piece of coursework (such as an essay, a report, a practical analysis) or sat an exam: you’re entitled to feedback from us. Lecturers will strive to give you generic feedback in class after exams – and for coursework you’ll get comments directly related to your piece of work. We are also keen to talk to you about the feedback you received – and to find ways in which you can use your feedback to improve in the future. Please contact your lecturer(s) about this if you have module-specific queries. For general queries – and to look at the overview of feedback you received and work out how you can approach TB2 (and the rest of your degree course), please make sure to see your Personal Tutor. We will soon invite all our tutees to set up meetings with us, once all the marking is done.
Also, if you feel you need more detailed feedback for an exam, please get in touch with your lecturer(s), as they can ask to look at your scripts and give you more specific feedback in return.
Not long now, and we’ll be into the next teaching block! Monday (21.1.) it’ll all start again. I’ll be teaching all levels (of English Language and Linguistics) this TB – with lots of interesting practical tasks, cultured (!) experiments and contact-induced change in store. There shall be chocolate, too, I heard…. (apologies to those on a January diet!)
