TPP7123 Communicating at University B responds to the TPP program objectives relating to increasing the literacy skills of people who want to gain entry to tertiary education, successful transition for students who gain access to tertiary programs, and increasing levels of self-esteem and self-confidence in the student's ability to successfully undertake formal study in a higher education program. Effective and appropriate communication is essential for success at university. TPP7123 provides instruction, opportunities for practice, assessment and constructive feedback to enable students to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes to enable them to successfully communicate at university.

TPP7123 Communicating at University B introduces, teaches, models and provides opportunities for practice and assessment in academic communication skills at a more advanced level than TPP7111 Communicating at University A.

Students will learn about finding, understanding and using information effectively; communicating ideas competently orally and in writing, and the standards of logic, evidence and ethical use of information required for first year university study. Through the process of researching for, planning and writing an academic essay, students will develop and practise skills in effective reading, finding information, organising ideas to express a clear argument, writing effective academic paragraphs and referencing.
