Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be capable of examining and checking technical texts. They will be able to analyze different kinds of texts based on their target group intentions. The influences of text design will be illustrated and structures for easier text creation will be learned. The documentation of research and work findings, including how to handle quotations and Internet sources, their identification in texts and the creation of a bibliography will enable students to create technical/scientific texts more efficiently.
