Indicative  Content

 

This  module aims to help you develop and practise a set of essential academic  skills - those you need to research and write a piece of academic writing in  your proposed area of study (usually a report, but other types of academic  writing - for example an essay - may also be appropriate).

 

Learning  Strategies

 

You  will be involved in a variety of classroom and homework activities. You may  watch DVDs which explore cultural and social issues. You will take part in  various activities which build on these things, such as classroom debates and  presentations. All of this will feed into your thinking about choosing your  topic and then writing about it.

Class  time will be spent developing the skills that are needed to produce a  competent piece of academic writing.

 

You  will also be spending a lot of time outside the classroom practising these  skills.


 Here are some examples of the sort of activities you'll be doing throughout  the module:

·          Discussing  possible topics with tutor and fellow students.

·          Doing  exercises to help you read more effectively.

·          Practising  note taking techniques.

·          Developing  an academic written style.

·          Learning  how to do academic referencing

Your  tutor will select suitable materials to help you to develop these academic  writing skills.

 

Assessment  Details

 

 

The  assessment for this module comprises two elements that test all of the  Learning outcomes.

 1. A written assessment in essay or business report format which demonstrates  academic writing skills by summarising, paraphrasing and analysing  information from given research and academic articles relating to your chosen  academic topic. You will also include an explanation of what is meant by  plagiarism and how to avoid it.  

You  will use an appropriate referencing format throughout this written  assignment. (1500 words) (80%)

 

2.       A 5  minute PowerPoint presentation (20%).

During this presentation you will  talk about the process of doing your research and writing up your  findings.  You will demonstrate your ability to communicate a topic to  others and to respond to verbal questions.

 

Resources

 

Access  to the library and IT facilities
 An advanced learner's English dictionary

Texts

 

The  tutor will be able to recommend useful books to help you with your work. Another  very useful resource is the Internet, where there are numerous sites which  focus on academic writing. As for the material for your topic itself, you'll  find your information largely from the university library and the Internet.

 There are many books which can help you develop your academic writing skills.  Here are some suggested texts:

 Cottrell, S. (2008) The Study Skills Handbook, Basingstoke:  Palgrave/Macmillan

 Price, G. and P. Maier (2007) Effective Study Skills: Unlock your  Potential Harlow, Pearson
