We’re pleased that a recording of Margaret’s seminar is now available.
Two of my favourite pieces on writing share the same title: “Air and Light and Time and Space”. The first is a poem by Charles Bukowski. In it, he attacks the idea that a writer might need to find the right conditions to write – the air, light, time and space: no baby, if you’re […]
On February 28, 2020, I was excited to see that my paper ‘Developing Evaluative Judgement: Enabling students to make decisions about quality of work’ had reached 100 citations on Google Scholar.
