Overview

The learning and teaching in this unit supports students in their transition to business studies at university and, through their participation in a range of student centred activities that draw upon other units in the course, it supports them to develop skills that are necessary for further professional, personal and academic learning and participation in the workforce.

Learning activities are scaffolded to include team dynamics, information analysis and academic skill formation in both written and oral business communication. Learning activities develop reflective writing on team formation, management of team conflict, team based reports using various presentation styles and formats, online group collaboration review and academic writing and referencing.
