|RESH900/901 will focus on the development of English language and academic communication required for research writing and presentation component of Higher Degree Research (HDR) programs. The subject will assist students in recognising and producing appropriate forms of academic communication specific to their disciplines. The subject uses a scaffolding framework and project-based design to develop students' ability to: identify, analyse and evaluate sources; develop a critical and logical argument in written and spoken forms of communication; and use evidence and reference correctly according to the requirements of their discipline. Students will engage in a wide range of in-class activities that involve the analysis and articulation of forms of writing specific to their chosen field. The students will produce and be assessed on an annotated bibliography, a literature review, two oral presentations and a draft research proposal on their topic of choice.
I urge you to encourage any of your PhD students who could benefit with writing assistance to enrol in this subject for Spring Session 2011. If you wish to enrol a student in the subject please send an email to Kim Callaway asap to organise enrolment.
