Writing Well I @ Your Desk is an instructor-led and -supported online course. The course runs for two weeks, and each week you’ll be able to access the core content whenever is most convenient for you. You’ll learn from interactive presentations, quizzes, discussion boards, exercises, and printable support materials. Optionally, you can take part in the two live video sessions scheduled during the workshop. The course is delivered on a robust and secure Moodle platform, and all you need to access it is internet access and an up-to-date browser.
This online course is equivalent to the in-class version of Writing Well I, delivering the same quality content and instructor support. It requires approximately 6 hours per week for two weeks to complete.
It can be a challenge to develop and keep a crisp, clear writing style when we work in a culture where buzzwords abound, and complex, long-winded sentences seem to be the writing norm. Yet everyone appreciates writing that is clear and direct. It saves readers time and energy leaving them free to concentrate on the message without distractions from fuzz or ambiguity.
This course provides the tools to help you write clearer, simpler, and more precise sentences without sacrificing content or becoming simplistic. It shows you how to identify and fix trouble spots that muddy meaning, cut out words and phrases that serve no purpose, and fine tune the ones that do. It will help you develop good habits you can rely on to keep your writing clear and sharp.
