Public Speaking


The skill of researching academically is not formally taught.  However, it holds such high value and the way that research is written up can lead to a difference between a pass or fail. Unfortunately, this lack of formal teaching of how to research academically means that many students are unable to communicate their research in a coherent manner. Having said that, it’s easily learned and that’s what this course will help to achieve.


  • The research process
  • Why you shouldn’t only use a popular search engine
  • Recognising your biases
  • Defining the information needed
  • Managing your time
  • Saving research and organising notes
  • Identifying a line of argument

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define your information need
  • Use critical reading techniques
  • Write up your research
  • Protray your findings in a credible way
