Information Literacy Prize 2018/2019
In recognition of the role that information literacy skills and feedback plays in helping you develop academic writing, we are inviting submissions from all 1st year students in DkIT for the Information Literacy Prize 2018/2019.
We have two Kindle Fire tablets to give as prizes: one to the student who demonstrates the most engaging piece of academic writing, and the other to the student who can best explain how the information provided in the feedback will be used in other assignments.
In 1st year you learn what is needed to have your written work taken seriously in an academic context. This involves developing a scholarly approach to finding information, using it appropriately and communicating your thoughts in a scholarly style. Perhaps the most important factor in learning to write effectively is engaging with the feedback you receive on your written work and using this to improve your academic writing.
