#becomingeducational W17: Analyse all this – and WRITE

This week was about developing those RESEARCH REPORTS.
We know that you are going to collect good, rich data… BUT that data needs to be USED WELL!

We want you to be able to analyse your findings – and make the most of them.

We want you to develop the way that you write about and discuss ideas, data and theory – so that you showcase your work and your understanding to best effect…

And that is what these weeks are all about – we hope you are finding them challenging – but useful.

This week Dan managed to blog first – so we are happily re-blogging his post.

NEXT WEEK: GetAhead!! Good luck to Selena and Natalie for their workshop!! Good luck to the #becomingeducational media team who are going to capture the whole event… And good luck to Dom and the other second years (Meredith and Regina) who are organising this year’s Splash!!

THE WEEK AFTER: WRITING WORKSHOP:
* Reviewing and developing what we have done this week – and
* Peer Review and developing those real research reports!!

See you all next week!!
