This subject was previously known as EDS101 Literacy and Numeracy Across the Curriculum.

This subject examines literacy and numeracy as a dynamic, evolving, social, and cultural-historical construction, rather than being represented as a fixed body of skills. It focuses on identifying and understanding the literacy and numeracy demands and conventions in learning areas other than English and Mathematics. This is accomplished by developing an awareness of opportunities for the planning and application of critical literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum.
