GL5013: PROFESSIONAL SKILLS INCORPORATING INTERNATIONAL FIELD TRIP (2021-2022)

Last modified: 16 Sep 2021 14:35


Course Overview

By the end of this course, students will be aware of issues in relation to team work, particularly communication, diversity, and organisation. They will be able to communicate technical interpretation effectively by oral, written and electronic methods. They will utilise knowledge gained in the field and classroom to complete a number of industry-facing tasks through assessments based on real life scenarios utilising field-based data and concepts derived from lectures and field observations. These skills will be developed on two fieldtrips, one of which will focus on the exceptional geology exposed in Utah.
