Contenu

The module “Effective Communication” is a core requirement for students in the MSc CCN programme. It features courses presented by 2 different faculty members of the Télécom SudParis department of Languages & Humanities. We aim to equip students with some of the communicative skills & practices required to become a doctoral student and finally a professional engineer. Topics include: oral presentations, academic writing, negotiation & intercultural awareness. This module does include some lectures but the majority of class time is spent on interactive exercises, discussion, case studies and hands-on experience. Preparation and follow-up assignments encourage students to draw conclusions from personal experience inside and outside the classroom

Evaluation

Grading is as follows:
70% continuous assessment
This includes presence in class, completion of all tasks set, not only participating in exercises (oral presentations etc) but actively preparing for exercises and where necessary preparing outside class time. It also includes the evaluation of assignments set for outside class time (i.e. homework) and actively taking part in feedback sessions and discussions.
(In assignments students must present their own ideas in their own words, plagiarism is punishable with a failing grade and possibly more severe action.)
30 % final exam
A three-hour written exam

Class participation requires presence in class, completion of all tasks set; not only participating in exercises but actively preparing for exercises and if necessary preparing outside of class. Participation also includes actively taking part in feedback sessions and discussions.
