Workshop 2 on Final Year Project Thesis Writing for the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME)

On 28 March & 31 March 2022, Ms Laura Buddle conducted two repeated two-hour workshops for final-year BME students to prepare them for writing their final year project reports. The workshop aimed to (1) help students improve their understanding of the features of academic style; (2) correct common language errors that occur in BME theses; and (3) summarise the areas of weakness identified in the mechanics of report writing. Prior to the workshop, the EAC team had designed a pre-workshop survey to help Ms Buddle understand students’ needs better and tailor the teaching materials accordingly. The workshop was generally well-received. Not only did students find the workshop beneficial in enhancing their language awareness, but they also spoke highly of the teacher’s passion and clear articulation of materials. The workshop, although being held on Zoom due to a fresh outbreak of COVID-19, was still found to be engaging and stimulating. The EAC team looks forward to collaborating with the BME department and providing their students with more language support in the next academic year.
