As a foundational course, students will be introduced to successful communication at university and in their discipline. This course introduces students to foundational theory and practice of written and oral communication across a diverse range of creative and professional disciplines. This course will introduce principles of persuasive communication and the kinds of contexts that are conducive to its effective use: working with the public, being members of teams, being a leader of a team, being collaborative, communicating with empathy, negotiation skills, conflict management and confidentiality.
Through a mixture of discussion and workshops, this course is geared towards first-year students who find they frequently need to communicate their ideas to people in a variety of professional and informal contexts. Students will learn about effective communication through different media platforms and audience considerations in order to enhance critical thinking skills to improve constructive communication and employability.
