description & set texts
This course continues to develop students’ academic skills, such as the ability to unpack academic texts, effective note taking, outlining and essay writing, accurate punctuation, effective proofreading skills, and referencing. As part of the course work, students will read and summarise academic texts, write a short academic paper using sources, and complete various smaller tasks. They will also give a short formal presentation on a piece of empirical academic research. The course is intended to revisit and build upon the work done in the first semester. The overall aim is to provide students with the skills they will need for their future studies at the university, as well as some core skills that they can use in their future careers.
