Welcome to SP2171
SP2171: Discovering Science (referred to as ’71’) is one of the core SPS modules. It has been designed to equip you with several essential skills that any good scientist should possess. However, we do not expect everyone who joins SPS to go into research or stay in academia. Instead, SPS is a quick way to figure out, for yourselves, if you want to be in research or academia. We have kept this in mind in setting up 71; its primary skills will be readily transferable to a non-academic or non-research environment.
71 extends over two semesters. However, this does not translate into more work; it is still a 4 MC module. Instead, the two semesters offer you the (rare) opportunity to slow down, savour and internalise all that you are learning.
Diverse teaching expertise. 71 is taught jointly by SPS, Centre for English Language Communication (CELC) and the Science Library. This allows you to benefit from a broad range of teaching and learning expertise.
Contact the module coordinator Dr Chammika Udalagama (email@example.com) if you require more information about the module.
