Peter Palmer also developed materials, as well as offering ideas that greatlyimproved this unit. David West, the current head of Pre-sessional courses,and Graham Hall, the head of the English Language Centre, supported methroughout the most discouraging times. They are the best of all possible bosses. Pippa Macleod, Barbara Tully, Jason Soffe, and Joan Hewittcontributed to the creation of this handbook; I am grateful for their generoushelp.Many teachers who taught on the Projects unit in 2001 contributed their ideasfor the development and improvement of this handbook. Their responses,often through anonymous feedback, inform this handbook and are deeplyappreciated, though they cannot be individually acknowledgedStudents who wrote projects and also took time to discuss their experiencesafter entering degree courses provided invaluable advice. Their contributionsmake this a better course for future students.© Northumbria University 2002Created by Erik Borg Academic writing handbook 4
