Product Description

Transferable Academic Skills Kit (TASK) Module 5: Scientific Writing

The Transferable Academic Skills Kit (TASK) is a flexible learning resource that has been carefully designed to develop the key transferable skills that promote students’ success in university and college study. Whether you are a student or a teacher, the TASK series provides a tried and tested teaching and learning tool suitable for a broad range of academic disciplines.

A series of supported exercises relates theory to practice and provides students with the tools to develop a framework of skills that can then be used in a wide range of contexts, both inside and outside the academic world. Each module also has web work and extension activities that offer additional information and practice relating to the skills covered in that module.

TASK can be followed as a complete course or individual modules can be selected to address specific needs, building the skills required by home and international students at all levels.
