These workshops are for students registered on the Work Based and Integrative Studies programmes.

CPED offers a strong portfolio of options for you to negotiate as part of your degree pathway. Some are delivered in powerfully practical workshops held in the North West of England, and others are facilitated at a distance in the form of online learning or work-based projects. Review our module catalogue, and speak with your tutor to integrate those which will have greatest impact in your context.

Writing Days

CPED are offering Writing Days for current CPED/CWRS students only, who want further support in their studies. If you are not a current, registered student of CPED/CWRS, you will not be able to attend these workshops.

Attendance isn't mandatory, but we all find it hard to fit in study with work. This will be a day dedicated to writing alongside other people.

These will be online only, not face-to-face (online was overwhelmingly the preferred option for the last one). However, if you want to come to campus and work in one of the libraries, you could book yourself a space and join in via your phone/laptop/tablet.

This is your opportunity to book some time in your diary to work on something YOU need to write.  This could be, for example, a module assignment, a Triple NELM, a doctorate or a journal article.   This idea is that we will all be writing at the same time and the day will run in short bursts of writing so it isn't overwhelming.  This isn't a tutorial session and we won't be asking you to show us what you have written and you won't get feedback on it.  It's a time for us to come together and write.

The schedule for each day will be strict and as follows

  • 10:00 - 10:10 Introduction and expectations of the day
  • 10:10 - 10:30 A quick exercise to get you in the mood for writing
  • 10:30 - 11.30 Writing time
  • 11:30 - 11:45 Break
  • 11:45 - 12:45 Writing time
  • 12:45 - 13:45 Lunch
  • 13:45 - 14:45 Writing time
  • 14:45 - 15:00 Break
  • 15:00 - 15:45 Writing time
  • 15:45 - 16:00 Reflection

If you can, do keep your camera on (I personally find it helps me to stayed focus on writing if others can see me).  It won't be recorded!

If you can only come to part of it, that's fine, simply use the Teams links below and just join in as you can.

Dates

We look forward to a successful writing day, whether you achieve 500 or 5,000 words, you'll still be making progress!
