|Description||BUSS1900 Managing Business Communication A is designed to support students in developing their business communication skills at the very outset of their degree to ensure success in the semesters that follow. BUSS1900 is a non-fee, non-credit weighted unit. All commencing undergraduate students are enrolled in BUSS1900 but have the option of withdrawing following a mandatory waiver test. The test is conducted during 0rientation Week (O Week) preceding the start of each semester. Following the waiver test, if a students response indicates that they will benefit from additional support in their first semester they will remain enrolled in BUSS1900 and their timetable will provide the details of their weekly 1 hour workshop. These classes will provide students with assistance in academic writing, analysing, summarising, referencing, quoting and paraphrasing. Results have shown that regular attendance at BUSS1900 workshops improves substantially students pass rate in their other units through improved academic writing skills.|
