Creating graphs yourself can be a lengthy process, especially if you’re struggling to meet a deadline. At the University of Lincoln we have the Snipping Tool software that enables you to capture images, which you can then either paste it into your document or save it and upload the image onto a web-based platform, such as a blog.
First decide on what image you want to capture, and have the graph ready to capture on your screen (this one is about the worth of global marine ports & services 2007-11 from the Marketline database). Always remember to properly reference though!
- Start > all programs > accessories > launch Snipping Tool
- File > New (the box disappears and a cross appears)
- Hold the left-hand side of the mouse down and drag a square or rectangle over you image
- Release the mouse and the image you have captured appears
- copy image and paste into your document
- OR to save the image > File > Save As

Love them or loathe them but reflective accounts are here to stay in Higher Education, be it recorded on a reflective journal entry, a text on your mobile, an essay a Twitter, blog or Facebook entry, a formal report or professional account . Some naturally feel uncomfortable with this kind of writing. Fortunately for the purposes of this blog post, I enjoy tracking my learning through writing, which I have accomplished a few times at postgraduate study, as well as supporting students drafting their learning logs. The trick, I would say, is to blend theory and case studies (real life examples) with reflective writing. This approach accommodates the requirements of UK Higher Education. I hope you find these slides useful, which will form a lecture to marketing students next Monday.
