This course meets regularly two days per week, at the first periods on Tuesday and Friday during term. The class is fully interactive and attendance is compulsory.
Meets in CUEE Conference Room #303 Midorigaoka Building #3 (third floor).
The roundtable seminar is intended both to identity and improve skills in technical writing (i.e., those used for academic journals) and also to improve oral presentation techniques, assisted by Power Point or similar media.
The initial meeting of this class, which is really a "workshop", will be:
Tuesday, April 10th,
in the CUEE Meeting Room, Building #3 (Third Floor) at 9 A.M.
We will continue to meet each Tuesday and Friday morning through July, with exceptions for university and other holidays.
Please bring an electronic dictionary or I-phone to class, as well as writing materials.
I anticipate a mixture of first-time students and students who participated in ATC II last autumn. (At that time we concentrated on the analysis of texts, whereas this spring I hope we will be able to concentrate more actively on how to write and on individual presentation skills.)
You will learn to be clear and logical in approach and to write, and present, from the point of view of a prospective reader or listener. You will also learn to speak so that you can be heard easily. We hope to make visual materials (PP) uniform and consistent― as well as attractive, interesting, and persuasive.
This takes hard work and, for some students, may at first feel unfamiliar. To achieve your goals, you need to be willing to make some mistakes―then correct them over time.
To do this, we must meet TWICE a week on a regular basis and you will receive two credits for the seminar.
