PSYE103 Communication Skills and Academic Writing in English - Part I
Writing an academic paper and giving a presentation in class are crucial skills for students because they prepare them for their professional activity, as well as for their degree courses in English. Your tutors will assess your critical thinking and your clear presentation – orally and in writing. In this course we will practise skills such as addressing the question, planning a logical structure, developing an argument, effective persuasion and using visual aids, as well as writing drafts and improving your paper or presentation. Writing is rewriting: during revision, you check your paper for clarity and coherence and refine your argument.
This course is intended for students who are not native speakers of English, so we will also practise style and accuracy in writing and exercise voice, pronunciation and body language in oral presentations.
