I believe I can write: exploring the impact of writing workshops on self-efficacy for Foundation degree students.

This intervention study explored the impact of different writing workshops on self-efficacy for writing for Foundation degree students. With the additional insight from in-depth interviews, it also examined the relationships between self-efficacy, academic goals, locus of control and attainment to determine how best we can support students with their writing going forwards.
