A reminder that the Student Learning Writing Retreat is on next week. A
great opportunity to increase your productivity !
*Date: Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 September 2016*
*Time:* 9.00am to 3.30pm both days (you can register for both days, one
day, and part of a day)
*Venue:* Institute of Professional Learning: Te Whai Toi Tangata,
*Registration*: Email Andrea Haines: ash1(a)waikato.ac.nz Enrol by
Monday Friday 2 September. Numbers strictly limited.
The retreat provides you with an opportunity to focus on your writing in a
space free of the usual distractions that you might otherwise encounter in
your daily workspace. The retreat is designed to provide a motivating,
supportive environment where you can concentrate on writing or reading,
connect with others undertaking their own postgraduate work, discover
strategies for overcoming writing blocks, and receive feedback on your work
if you wish. Sharing of work is entirely voluntary – the main aim of the
retreat is to give you an opportunity to write uninterrupted.
Students attending previous retreats have found the collegial atmosphere
motivating and the feedback on their writing really helpful. Others have
found that simply having the opportunity to write in a different space,
free of the usual interruptions, enabled them to accomplish a good amount
*What you need to bring to the retreat:*
Some writing or reading you are currently working on and your laptop,
tablet or notebook. The site has good Wi-Fi capability.
Morning/afternoon teas and lunch are provided on both days by Student
We look forward to seeing you there!
