Activities per year
This project is investigating the use of corpus outputs from the British Academic Written English corpus in feedback on written work from students.
When students - both home and international - submit writing for assessment at university they tend to commit errors. These may be due to inexperience in writing or to gaps in their linguistic knowledge. Often these issues are not easy to check using traditional reference works. We are using an online database of student work (a 'corpus') to create examples which students can use to help improve their writing and hopefully make it more natural / idiomatic.
We have created around 110 links and shared these at a number of international and national events. We have also collected some student feedback on the use of these links. This has received a very positive response.
