What is Patchwork text?
Patchwork text is a cumulative form of assessment submitted at the usual hand-in at the end of the module with a formative element submitted part-way through the module.
• Assignments are written gradually over the course of the module, discussed and edited collaboratively each week.
• ‘Patches’ are short pieces of writing with different formats and areas of focus and they involve a range of different skills.
• Patches connect to each other through the module learning objectives and the final patch is reflective commentary that ‘stitches’ them all together, drawing on further reading, including other students’ patches, to produce a personal synthesis that addresses the main aims of the module
• Patches are set each week and then brought to the next session where they will be reviewed and discussed with other students in small working groups.
• Each patch relates to one or more of the learning outcomes of the module.
• We recommend that you aim for approximately 500 words per patch.
Module assessment requirements:
Summative patches (five) submitted at the end of the module (2500 words); formative patches (two) submitted part-way through the module (1000 words).
You should rework the formative patches to include in your summative assignment but you must submit the 1000 word formative element in order to pass the module. There is more information below and on Moodle and we will discuss this over the course of the module.
Tutor and student roles in patchwork text assignments
Students will need to engage individually (writing patches) and collaboratively (offering supportive and constructive feedback).
Tutors recognise and appreciate that these are challenging processes and will support you. Although we will not read written drafts during seminars or tutorials, we will discuss your ideas and offer guidance on both content and the writing process in every seminar.
There is an opportunity for formative tutor feedback halfway through the module via the turnitin submission of two patches. Other than that, we invite you to develop your own judgments about what comprises ‘good’ writing collaboratively over the course of the module.
There is no ‘right’ way of doing the patches and you can each interpret writing tasks differently. You should rely on the feedback you get from your group. Therefore it is important that you make every effort to attend seminars and, where you cannot all be together in the same physical space, that you make time for discussions as a group online. Without these opportunities, you will be disadvantaging yourself and each other.
Two patches should be submitted part-way through the module for tutor feedback as part of the programme and University Learning and Teaching Strategy emphasis on increasing formative assessment. These should be Patch 1 and a second patch of your choice from the patches you have worked upon at that stage. These patches should be submitted as hard copy during the seminar and you should print out and fill in the cover sheet on Moodle to indicate what kind of feedback you would most value – check Moodle for further instructions.
At the end of the module, five patches will be submitted through Turnitin only as part of an overall assignment; these are:
• The Parenting Guide Patch (2)
• The Advocacy Patch (3)
• The Letter Patch (4)
• The Mentoring Patch (5)
• The Final Reflection Patch (6)
However you should include the Disobedient Professional Patch (1) and your other formative patch as appendices.
