Course Aims

This course focuses on the academic language skills (writing, reading, and speaking) necessary for producing a data-driven research report.  Data is collected from questionnaires created by small groups of students on an approved topic of their choice.

The format of the written report follows the Introduction/ Methodology/ Results/ Discussion (IMRD) pattern used in many academic disciplines, including Sciences, Engineering, Business, and Social Sciences.

Students learn how to present and discuss the findings of their research, using appropriate academic language.  An independent learning element is incorporated to encourage reflective and collaborative learning.  The course builds on the knowledge and skills students have acquired in the LC0200A course (English for Academic Purposes 1).
