Student Hub Live - Dealing with other people’s ideas

Online with Student Hub Live
Student Hub Live

Have you ever been asked to write about someone else’s theory in your own words, and felt that you could never express it quite as well as the author themselves? Will a large quotation do…? What does the theory actually mean, and why might it matter? So often we meet a theory or concept and are asked to do something with it; perhaps to write a comparison or to discuss the extent to which it supports another idea.

The key challenge in creating arguments based on other people’s ideas is understanding what they mean, followed by identifying which parts relate to the argument and therefore need to be included. All of this requires confidence in understanding and articulating, and in this workshop SHL discuss how to deconstruct ideas in order to apply them to questions. They will also cover how to represent someone else’s writing in your own words. 

Four hundred tickets (with a limit of one per person) are available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis through Eventbrite. Subscribe at Student Hub Live if you would like to be notified about regisration and upcoming events.
