(Recorded Webinar March 18, 2014)

Course Description: “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” – George Bernard Shaw. Communication is effective when all parties involved take away the same interpretation of the message being conveyed; effective written communication poses an additional challenge because the writer must obey by the appropriate “rules” of writing if his or her audience is going to successfully interpret the intended meaning of the message.

Join Ms. Jamie Gradick as she provides a review of the most commonly made writing mistakes and works with participants to address writing concerns and questions. This training will focus on issues such as punctuation and grammar, sentence construction, and proper style and diction use in professional writing. Additionally, participants will be given the opportunity to complete brief writing samples, which will be used in the development of a Moodle–based training module designed to address each participant’s individual writing skills and concerns.
