- Course Outline
Many people are defeated by the attitude that writing is an awesome task. These people do not trust themselves with the language. They go to the files to see what has been done in the past. To overcome their insecurity, they try to write to impress. They hunt for big words to sound like an authority on the subject. They pad their reports to indicate thoroughness. That is not the path to confident, effective writing. This two-day workshop will help you teach participants the habits of good writing.
Workshop objectives include:
- Learn the value of good written communications.
- Develop paragraphs that introduce, connect, develop, and conclude some part of an idea.
- Prepare reports and proposals that inform, persuade, and provide information.
- Learn how to proofread your work so you are confident it is clear, concise, complete, and correct.
- Provide an opportunity to apply these skills in real work applications.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
