In the modern workplace, the ability to communicate well, both in speaking and writing, is highly valued. In this unit we will focus on developing effective communication, particularly in written form, in professional contexts. We will study and produce types of writing and documents that are essential for you to secure professional employment, as well as to thrive in the kind of professional employment you can expect to find as a graduate.
The unit is based in practical exercises to develop your abilities as a writer and also an editor of professional standard texts, but also designed to further your conceptual understanding of key issues in professional communication: audience, context, and language. We will also study principles of 'information gathering' and research for professional contexts, and put these into practice through activities and assignments
