• The library’s ‘[Heads Up]1‘ resources (“giving you a head start at uni”) include resources on academic writing, referencing, evaluating information, and ‘starting your assignment’ * UTS HELPS (Higher Education Language and Presentation Support) has some great [self-help resources to support student writing]1, as well as pointing to external resources, offering [one-to-one drop-in]2 sessions, setting up [peer-support]3, discipline-specific group-collaborative sessions ([UPassWrite]4), and general writing [workshops]5. * UTS has an institutional subscription to [Grammarly]6, which offers some writing feedback beyond that offered in Word (by [default at least]7), although some of my colleagues are not keen on elements of this feedback * In CIC we’re trialling the [Academic Writing Analytics (AWA)]8 tool for argumentative and reflective writing, which all students have access to (and some are encouraged to use as part of our research process) * Within-faculty support, for example the [Business school has an excellent writing guide]9.
