Chapter 8: Bridging the gap: writing in higher education

Daniel Cash


As student numbers within the Higher Education (HE) system continue to increase in the UK, there is a need to assess how best HE practitioners impart certain skill sets on the ever-growing cohort. Whilst there are many aspects that need to be considered, this chapter focuses upon a central aspect, and that is how a student may most effectively communicate their understandings with the written word. Based upon practical experience, this chapter discusses an approach that has been instituted and the rationale that underpinned its adoption. In describing the mentality and sentiments that formed this approach, the chapter aims to communicate a considered approach to facilitating an increased understanding of the process of writing at HE level and beyond.
