Syllabus:

This course is designed to introduce students to the literacies required for academic study at a tertiary institution. Language use at university differs from 'generic' language use in many ways, and these differences will be explored through discussion and practice. Students will consider the contextual use of language in academic settings, extend their skills and capacities in listening and reading a variety of texts for a variety of purposes, and practice these skills in a supported process. The course will explore the genres of written texts at university, and the differences between different types of assignment. There will be a particular focus on developing students' research literacies. This is not a course designed to address specific English language expression; students requiring this should undertake EDUC 1009 English Literacy for University. The course is geared toward providing students with skills in negotiating the complex linguistic terrain of tertiary study.
