measured, rather than on personal feelings
♦ intellectual – based on an enlightened judgment of
complex ideas and information, rather than an
appeal to emotions;
♦ rational – using clear thinking to make decisions
and judgments based on reason, rather than
passionate arguments against a doctrine or belief.
Referencing and Avoiding
plagiarism
 Referencing means acknowledging the source of
information you have used in your writing.
Referencing your work:
 Give your work academic credibility
 Demonstrate how your work links into your subject
area
 prevent accusation of stealing other people’s ideas
or words that is PLAGIARISM
How to give reference
Presentation Skills
 Presentation skills are important as presentations
are frequently used in the workplace as a means
of disseminating information and influencing
people.
 Some of the assessments for your programme of
study may involve giving a presentation. This
could take the form of an individual presentation
or a group presentation
Working in Groups
Team working is an essential skill required by employers for
almost every job.
During your programme of study you will be asked to work in groups
and some of your assessment activities will involve group work, that
is, a group presentation or a group project. The principle behind
group assessment activities is to give you some experience in being
part of, or perhaps leading, a team. It provides opportunities for you
to develop and demonstrate transferable skills such as:
1. communication,
2. negotiation,
3. participation,
4. compromise,
5. decision making,
6. teamwork.
Conflict Management in Groups
 Establish a joint level of ambition
 Agree on time spent
 Keep appointments
 Concentrate on academic matters
 Communicate in a proper and polite manner
 Make ongoing evaluations
Examination Skills
 The aim of the examination process is to test your
knowledge and understanding in an environment
with a time constraint.
 Examinations are not merely a memory test either
– they test understanding, rather than the specific
description of each and every theory and concept.
 They also seek to evaluate some generic skills
such as time management (have you answered all
the questions you need to in the given time
period?) and your effectiveness under pressure.
Thank You
“Intelligence plus character-that
is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
