Language, and the ability to communicate effectively are critical skills in the global economy. Writing and composition are vital to communicating your ideas clearly. This introductory writing course will help you develop and express ideas effectively for a variety of purposes, audiences and occasions. During the course, you will complete several major written projects, along with a reflection for each project. For each project, you can decide what level of technology you wish to use. If you wish to earn university credit for the course we will ask you to complete a portfolio in which you demonstrate what you have learned. Specifically, you will address what you have learned in the course and provide evidence that you have acquired the skills and knowledge taught during the course.

Zusätzliche Informationen

Duane Roen Since childhood, Duane Roen has been interested in how people learn to write. Since his days as an undergraduate, he has been interested in how teachers can help students learn to write. His research interests have evolved throughout his career, and he is now most interested in collaborative writing, audience, gender and written language, and professional development for graduate students. He loves to make connections among disciplines, which means that he can draw on many fields in his scholarship—rhetorical theory, composition theory, literary theory, linguistics, psychology, sociology, feminism, anthropology. Because his interest in collaborative writing is more than an abstraction, he has co-authored/co-edited most of his 9 books and  more than 250 chapters, journal articles and conference papers
