Human Communication Sciences Intro Week
Want to help your students bridge the gap to university life? Intro Week inquiry activities in Human Communication Sciences were revamped in September 2006 as part of a CILASS project in order to do just that.
Students worked in groups on a variety of activities, including treasure hunts and poster presentations to familiarise themselves with their course and IBL, their department and their university. At the end of Intro Week, students showcased posters they had created to a wide variety of staff and students from across the university, giving students an opportunity to discuss their research and their first taste of university life.
