Offered by Open Universities Australia and Curtin University, this undergraduate unit in Advanced Editing and Publishing gives students the opportunity to learn and use practical editing skills.
Building on existing knowledge from a previous unit (Writing, Editing and Publishing), the course aims to take students' editing skills to a professional level. Participants in this online course will apply their editing skills to a real-world publishing project. Students will be assessed on this project, along with a written assignment, an editing journal and a report.
