APPL8100 is delivered through a weekly two-hour on-campus seminar, which is also broadcast via a video-conferencing platform (e.g. Zoom). This weekly session is recorded and is made available through Echo 360. It is essential for students to listen each to these recordings in full if they are not able to attend in real time.
Lecture slides and other material will be posted weekly on the APPL8100 iLearn site.
There is a textbook for this unit: Candlin, C.N., Crichton, J., & Moore, S.H. (2017). Exploring Discourse in Context and in Action. Palgrave Macmillan. This book is available to Macquarie students as an e-book through the Macquarie University Library, or students may purchase their own copy if they prefer.
Participation in online discussion forums is part of the assessment for this unit, and the discussion topics, dates and instructions will be posted on the APPL8100 iLearn site.
