Language in the Workplace: Topics in Professional Communication

This module introduces some key areas in which language study and social science studies of interaction can help us understand practices in a range of workplaces.  It is intended to complement the module Corporate Communication (although this is not a prerequisite for this module).  The topics in this module will be applicable to institutions such as social services, non-governmental organizations, technical services, and schools, and be relevant to a wide range of communication-centred jobs including human resources, technical writing, public relations, training, and management.
