‘Bilby’ Creative Arts

The Bilby Case Study (pdf 1.48MB) is a component of the unit ALW117 Writing for Professional Practice, a unit resourced by the School of Communication and Creative Arts in the Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University. ALW117 was developed to improve students’ writing, critical analysis and communication skills as a foundations requirement for all undergraduate university students. ALW117 is a core unit in some majors and may also be taken as an elective. The content is foundational, but the pedagogy creative and vocational. The Bilby Case Study was developed as a multimedia resource to achieve learning objectives in persuasive writing and work related writing tasks in this unit.

The case study has two authors. Karen LeRossignol developed the unit and the case study. She teaches in the discipline of professional writing and has developed learning resources for students in transition, particularly international students. Professor Jennifer Radbourne is Head of School of Communication and Creative Arts (where the unit is resourced) and Chair of the University Teaching and Learning Committee. She therefore has a leadership role and responsibility for teaching and learning in the first year program.
