Description

This subject focuses on developing the academic written and spoken language skills required for undergraduate study in information technology and for the professional workplace. Students take a critical and analytical approach to understanding and producing written and spoken texts appropriate for IT professionals in the Australian context. Students consider the ethical and social issues that IT raises within both society and the IT industry. Accordingly, students undertake a range of listening, speaking, reading and writing activities individually and in groups to maximise the development of their written and spoken communication and academic literacy.
