A University Course in Academic Communication Skills (Resource book) was written by the members of the Communication Skills Project in consultation with the staff of the four universities.
The purpose of the course is to improve the communication skills of students so that they can cope efficiently with their studies. The course focuses on the learning of the following skills: library skills, study skills, reading and note-taking skills, the interpretation of tables and graphs, and writing skills.
The course is divided into 5 units each of which represents an integrated study cycle with listening and reading inputs based on a theme of general interest and relevance to Kenya. At the beginning of each unit there is a major task which provides an overall purpose for the work of the unit and which culminates in a writing activity at the end of the unit.
