Courses offered

Information and Digital Literacy

The course serves as an introductory course to information and digital literacy.

Its focus is two pronged:

  1. To teach students to effectively and efficiently research, select, access, search and evaluate print and e-resources, and web information sources; to teach students about the ethical use of information for research; and create flexible, life-long research skills for effective information seeking and retrieval.
  2. To introduce students, both on a theoretical and experiential level, to general purpose computing, networks and the internet.

English Lab

The course aims to help students with academic writing, gradually guiding them to essay writing, which is the standard format of most college assignments.  It will first review the basic principles of paragraph writing and then introduce the various patterns of essay development-the different ways of writing essays through selected readings and writing. The course will also consolidate students’ knowledge of essential grammar and sentence structure in written and oral communication.
