Event Description

Full Description:
This practical, hands-on workshop will enable you to tweak your existing written and spoken science assignments to make the communication skills within them explicit to students, and help students develop and improve those skills.

Approximately 30% of assessment tasks in the BSc at UQ are written or spoken assignments yet many teachers complain that students do not communicate to the standard expected. Recent research shows that many core communication skills are implicit or absent from these types of assignments, but the good news is that assignments can easily be tweaked to enable our graduates to become effective communicators of science in a variety of contexts.

We will discuss the key features that make an assignment effective at developing communication skills, identify relevant activities and support materials for you and your students, and workshop effective marking criteria.

Bring your own assignment instructions to work on, or work with examples provided.

Directions to UQ

To St Lucia Campus, UQ Ipswich, and UQ Gatton.
