The research contributes to Business growth, economic development and understanding of business evolution.
English Academic Skills Mastery:
We define academic skills as:
’aspects of behaviour learned by students while studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University that are required to operate successfully at the level of higher education; practising these skills leads to the development of graduate attributes, such as problem solving and analytical ability, effective communication, and creativity and innovation. Academic skills are made up of core skills, such as academic writing, presentation skills and referencing, which underpin more complex skills, such as critical thinking and reflective practice’ (Academic Skills Specialists, 2013).
Thus, we recognise the importance of academic skills not only in achieving success on your programme of study but also after you leave Cardiff Met, as you look for employment as a graduate. Developing and practising these skills while you are studying will therefore better equip you for the workplace.
The core skills referred to in the definition include:
Writing (or written communication)
Presenting (or spoken communication)
These core skills underpin more complex skills, which are often more difficult to develop; they include:
Producing dissertations and longer pieces of work
Much of our work is focused on behaviour: you might be used to using Google to look for information to use in your assessed work, for example; but we can show you how to search more effectively using the University’s electronic resources, in addition to using the advanced search feature on Google. Or, you might have been taking notes in a certain way, for example, throughout your time at school or college, but there might be a more efficient and effective way of creating notes you hadn’t considered that we can talk you through.
