Susan Hoadley, Leigh Wood

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Discipline-specific discourse is the way disciplines and professions use language in a particular way. A key part of a student’s journey is learning the discourse of their discipline. In this guide we show how discourse and communication skills are embedded in programs and how learning outcomes, assessment tasks and learning and teaching activities can be aligned and designed to develop these skills.
