This course is designed to increase student literacy of contemporary issues, especially in subjects related to business, science, and technology. Students learn about these topics directly through assigned readings and discussions, but emphasis is also placed on life-long learning by allowing students to themselves select topics for reading, and teaching skills for critical evaluation of information sources. Learning topics also include reading strategies, expository writing skills, and presentation skills. Coursework includes reflective writing on assigned readings, summary report writing, and presentation
Advisory: For Year 2 students of the Financial Technology Programme only.
