10 Credits ACADEMIC YEAR



Aims/Description: The skills needed to be able to find, evaluate, summarise and critically evaluate information are all vital to success in an undergraduate degree programme, and are also key transferable skills. This module will provide training in a wide range of methods for information handling and communication. The teaching is largely in small groups, with students expected to take more responsibility for their own learning as the module progresses. Lectures provide basic tuition in skills and small group tutorials are used to develop these skills. In the second half of the course students work in groups to produce a paper on a subject of geographical interest to be presented, in both written and oral form, at an undergraduate conference.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to BSc and BA Geography; Environmental Science; Geography & Planning.

Staff Contact: Dr Desiree Fields
Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Tutorials, Independent Study
