  • Yet even more tricks & tips...
    Tools to assist you with your research and study
    http://www.library.qut.edu.au/learn/
    Effective communication – written and oral
    Academic communication – not what you do at work
    Parsimony – Excessively sparing or frugal
    But this is “a university for the real world”!
    Critical Evaluation
    Read widely and do not settle for the first opinion
    Academic Honesty - avoid plagiarism
    Unlike programming – R&D is NOT “Rob & Duplicate”
    Need to develop your “systems”

  • Constructive feedback
    Lecturers will give you constructive feedback...
    if you ask for it and
    when your assessment is returned to you.
    When would you rather hear about going off on a tangent – before or after it’s been marked?
