Course Description

According to award-winning Australian journalist, John Pilger, there is a fine line between good writing and pretentious writing. That is true whether you’re a journalist, a lawyer or a student. If you are planning to return to education, you’ll probably need to write an essay or two. Featuring a mixture of text, audio and video, this learning pathway examines the skills and techniques required to master that skill.

For anyone considering study, this pathway will explain the importance of planning your essay, how to take advantage of the numerous sources out there, how to evaluate sources and use them to their best advantage in your essay.

Laying out your argument clearly is important, and planning before you start writing will help you do that.

The pathway also explains the importance of structure, tone and content of an essay. There are tips on method and approach, how to introduce and conclude your work, how to write in your own words, and how to acknowledge the work of other writers that you have read. This pathway will give you all the tools you need to start writing essays.

Brief, Yet Helpful

The course is very brief, but it fits a surprising amount of helpful information into a small package. Of course, you won't finish the course as the best essayist in the world, but it is nonetheless filled with very useful advice. It is directed more at beginners though.
