Course Description
Using an immersive, case-based teaching style, this course introduces the basic concepts and vocabulary students build upon throughout the remainder of the certificate and draw upon in all future writing tasks. Students become equipped with a deep understanding of how to analyze any writing situation and make their writing a purposeful act of communication. Students engage with a series of authentic writing scenarios and a range of activities that provide hands-on practice and instructor coaching and feedback, as well as targeted exercises for improving grammar, mechanics, clarity, precision and persuasiveness. This collaborative, problem-based learning approach provides students with the strategies and flexibility they need to adapt to an ever-changing multimedia communication environment.
