How to understand and produce good aguments at university

Arguments are one of the most important aspects of university study, in any subject.

In this workshop, we consider how to both understand and build arguments in your discipline, and why that is the foundation of everything else that you will do as a student. Rather than approaching this as a set of rules to be learned, the session will offers a set of questions that you can use to approach your own course and develop your own skills in argumentation, whatever context you find yourself in.
