Prep Talk Newsletter  
Welcome to the Preparatory Year Newsletter Group "Prep Talk."
This newsletter is issued by the Department of English Language and Literature in support of the Preparatory Year teacher and the Preparatory Year student. Our aim, is to help new preparatory year students make a seamless transition from high school to university. By offering our support to the Prep Year instructor, we hope to create a balanced academic and social higher education environment for our preparatory year students.
The newsletter highlights best practice, revisits old themes in new contexts, recommends current readings in the fields of assessment and feedback, opens channels of discussion, promotes creative class pedagogy, offers tips that enhance learning and recommends successful communicative teaching tasks.
All Prep Year instructors teaching on the Department, will receive a copy of the newsletter and an invitation to join a resources and teacher support wiki within the coming week.
