Course Outline

Lessons

Course Length: 6hrs (1 day)

This is a one-day workshop for those who already are good writers. Our time will be devoted to writing letters of recommendation, of persuasion, of refusal, or of action, that reflect current word usage and up-to-date formats. You can also learn some basics about writing business cases, proposals, and reports.

Participants must complete Business Writing That Works course before taking this workshop.

Learning Objectives
This one-day workshop will teach participants how to:
- Make their writing clear, complete, concise, and correct.
- Improve sentence construction and paragraph development.
- Deal with specific business requests.
- Create effective business cases, proposals, and reports.
- Thoroughly document sources that they use in their writing.

Target Student
This course is for those who are already good writers, but who want to develop further skills in writing letters of recommendation, letters of persuasion, letters of refusal, or letters of action. It can be a challenge to keep up with current word usage and formats, so this course will also help you if you want to keep your skills up-to-date.
Completion of the Business Writing That Works course is a prerequisite for taking this class.

Course Outline
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.

The C's of Writing
All writing should be clear, concise, complete, and correct. We will look at each of these elements in detail during this session.

Writing Mechanics
In this session, participants will take a close look at the proper length of paragraphs, what a paragraph should contain, and how to order paragraphs.

Dealing with Specific Requests
Often people are asked to respond to a request for information or to write a particular letter (of recommendation, for example). We'll discuss some tips to keep in mind when writing one of these particular documents. Participants will also get some hands-on practice with writing letters of request.

Preparing Business Documents
Another common task is to write a business case, request for proposal, or a formal report. Where would you start? We will provide some guidelines that will help with these tasks.

Editing Techniques
To conclude the workshop, participants will apply what they have learned to their own writing.

Workshop Wrap-Up
At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

I think I underestimated my own knowledge of the program. This is not necessarily at the fault of the course or training provider.
I found the instructor very informative and she addressed all of my questions and concerns.

Too much information in one day - instructor had to race through material, skipping some of it entirely. Start delayed by 20 minutes due to course material not having been properly loaded on computers. These issues continued throughout class, ie some of my important menu tabs were in french, others in english. I had requested an English class. Another student had Excel 2007 instead of Excel 2010, when the rest of us and the instructor were working with 2010. I would have liked to continue to 4:00, but the instructor made it clear that her preference was to leave at 3:30, so no one said anything. The windows had to be opened because the room was too warm, but the people next to the windows were wearing their coats because they were too cold.
