Book Description

This Guide promotes writing-to-learn. Academic writing is a contested area that is tricky to navigate and master especially for newcomers. However, this does not need to be the case. This Guide is an invitation to move beyond the ‘mechanics’ of writing, to make it meaningful, engaging, interactive and fun. If writing is appreciated as developmental - and appropriately supported - it spurs students to write of their ‘best’ as they write to learn.


The illustrations, bright block colours, white space and shapes are all designed to make the content of the Guide come alive for the reader in a playful way that is designed to facilitate adaptation for their own practice and contexts.

Detailed Description

Creative pedagogies have a huge part to play in offering a different lens; as does the decolonisation of the curricula practices. As educators in positions of power and authority, no matter how ‘nice’ we are, we still grade their work; it is for us to frame their efforts within a wider social justice platform, giving a voice to all the students in our care, not just the privileged ones.

Debbie Holley, Professor of Learning Innovation, Bournemouth University


This Guide empowers tutors by providing useful and accessible strategies to adopt and mould to fit within their own teaching practice and to support students to develop their confidence and skills within academic writing.

Jon Tandy, BSc Natural Sciences Course Leader, Senior Lecturer in Physical Chemistry, London Metropolitan University


There are a wealth of ideas in this book that we are excited to continue exploring.

Susannah McKee and Marie Stephenson, Senior Lecturers, Extended Degree, London Metropolitan University


Overall, it is an honest, practical and thoughtful book that I would recommend as an essential read for anyone looking to develop the writing skills of others. 

Emma Gillaspy, Senior Lecturer in Digital Learning, University of Central Lancashire
