If you want to feel more comfortable meeting the writing challenges you’ll face in the professional workplace, this course is for you. It will help you make good decisions when solving any kind of on-the-job writing problem. You will learn to analyze specific writing situations, adapt common patterns of organization to those situations, generate effective content, structure your content strategically, make good document-design decisions, and write with an appropriate style for your intended readers. The assignments will consist of a short report, a collaborative project, and a variety of messages (e.g., a persuasive email, a letter conveying bad news). All will be based on realistic business situations. There will be no final exam.
