Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to appreciate how the content of different forms of presentation is varied to suit the needs of the professional audience;
  • be able to critically analyse and interpret information relevant to their professional situation, at a doctoral level;
  • be able to present a cogent critical analysis of information in a report.
The subject will cover the following topics:
  • Students will work closely with their supervisors in all aspects of this subject. Initially students will be required to select various sources of information relevant to their profession. The information to be analysed will be taken from journal articles, book chapters, professional reports and electronic sources (eg. World Wide Web).
  • Students will then critically analyse information selected. In their analysis students will develop high level analytical skills, provide a detailed analysis of the material and thus understand and appreciate how material can presented differently for different audiences.
