The unit develops students’ understanding of the university culture of scholarship whilst developing their critical thinking and information literacy skills. Students will explore the nature of knowledge, including their own biases and limitations, developing an understanding of how information can be presented and interpreted in relation to a range of real-world, contemporary issues.
- Critical Thinking: epistemology or how we know, what we know
- Academic Communication: group work
- Critical Thinking: frames & biases
- Information Literacy: current, relevant, authoritative sources
- Information Literacy: interpreting data
- Academic Integrity: text ownership & authorship
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit.
