Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

LCOMM301-21G requires students to participate in three hours sessions twice a week over five and a half weeks. A session will include a lecture and a tutorial. Students should read the relevant chapters in the paper's text book before the lecture.

Students would benefit from participating in person and delivering speeches to actual audience, F2F in class. However, lectures and tutorials will be delivered in both F2F form and on Zoom. Lectures will be recorded and available on the class Moodle page. Students' speeches will be delivered in class and on zoom.

This is a very intense paper and students' active participation in lectures and tutorials is essential.
