APC100 Academic and Professional Communications

I’ve finished APC100 Academic and Professional Communications via Curtin Uni / OUA, and really enjoyed the subject. we learned how to use Chicago referencing system (I knew a bit of this from my copyediting work at Dancecult Journal), research for academic writing, write argumentative academic essays, make an oral presentation (powerpoint with audio) and organize parts of a community arts project with a team.

My tutor was Katie Fielding who was brilliant — she was very helpful, engaged and knowledgeable. If you’re planning to take this class and she’s your tutor, then you’re in great hands, and I say “lucky you!” as she really encouraged everyone to keep going and get through the class work. Previously I’d always dropped out of uni classes/courses, so I was pretty happy to complete the subject.

I also did two OUA Prep classes also – Prep03 and Prep04, which actually were similar to the research and essay writing parts of APC100, and meant that at one point I had three essays to research and write instead of one!

  1. Hello Katie

    I am just finishing Curtin’s Art & Creativity via OUA and have already signed up for the next unit, however, I was wondering if I could do 2 units this study period.

    So I started searching the web for info on APC100 and came across your amazing documentation of the unit.

    I now feel a lot better informed and more confident taking on this as a second unit. Little things like knowing how the oral presentation would unfold or what the group projects might be like make a big difference.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to document it here.



    1. thanks Katalin. good luck with the class. I really enjoyed it. I hope you have Katie as your tutor as she’s great.

    1. np 🙂 how’d you like VSW100? I liked that one too. am just on VAR100 now.
      (I might remove the assignments. I just realised they probably don’t want people sharing them, since they have the exemplars in each class)
