COMM170 - Interpreting and Communicating Ideas

10 cp
Prerequisites: Nil
Teaching Organisation: 3 hours per week for twelve weeks or equivalent of lectures, tutorials and workshops (online or on campus)

This unit will equip students with a range of literacies to enable them to interpret, critically analyse and report ideas. The unit will use an integrated approach to allow students to build their digital literacy skills, numeracy skills and literacy skills to produce resources and reports that integrate materials in a variety of digital and non-digital formats. Students will explore and analyse spoken, written, visual, graphic and multimodal texts and the interconnectedness of numeracy and literacy in a variety of contexts. They will integrate the graphs, tables, diagrams and multi-media with the written word to communicate ideas effectively. Particular attention will be placed on the students' ability to write and report using language, numeric and visual representations appropriate to the audience.
