LEARNING AND THE NATURE OF COMMUNICATION
Credit points: 15
The effective use of communicative resources is central to partnerships, learning and teaching, working and socialising. Digital tools are an increasing part of those different relationships as communicative resources transform in response to recognition of the power of informal varieties, hybrid language, images, emoticons and emoji and tools such as social media. Students will explore what it means to be 'literate' or an effective user of such communicative resources with different learners and in different learning context as well as in face to face and digital interactions in teaching, learning and assessment.
