Strategic Workplace Communication (SWC).
In this course, you will learn skills and strategies for becoming an effective communicator,
in written, oral and visual forms in real-life and virtual contexts.
You will understand why good communication matters, how purpose, audience, message
and context influence the way we structure our communicative events.
Successful completion of this course means you will have developed a range of
communication competencies that will enable you to:
learning contexts, workplaces, and societies.
This course will be challenging and enlightening. You will be asked to explore who you are
as a communicator – strengths and opportunities for improvement – and also learn how to
modify the way you communicate in today’s tertiary learning and workplace contexts.
Course coordinator: Dr. Angela Feekery
I have been teaching communication for the past 4 years and
thrive on supporting students to become effective, confident
My research interests are centered on communication, information
and digital literacies in academic and professional contexts. Being
information and digitally literate means being able to use a range
of information and communication technologies to find, evaluate
and use relevant information ethically to extend understanding
and create new knowledge in a range of contexts. Engagement with these competencies
are the foundation for learning how to learn, developing critical thinking and problem-
solving skills, engaging in informed decision-making and ethical practices, and
communicating ideas effectively. I look forward to challenging you to be the best
communicator you can be!
