Skills III: Communicating
Full course description
Several different skills will be covered in periods four, five, and six, which deal with communicating ideas effectively to a larger audience.
Based on a number of written exercises, attention will be paid to giving feedback, structuring an academic paper, plagiarism, and writing according to current language and style rules. Students will be required to complete three small individual written assignments. They will also gain experience with communicating ideas audio visually and verbally. Furthermore, they will be introduced to therapeutic communication skills.
In addition, students will engage in a number of activities with the object of familiarising themselves with the various disciplines within psychology and with the labour market. In May, the mentor will have another individual meeting with every student on study progress.
The corresponding practicals for this course are: Writing Assignment 1, Writing Assignment 2, Writing Assignment 3, Portfolio Year 1 Part 2
