Communicating for Success

Communicating for Success supports you in developing communication skills that are essential for success in your personal and professional lives. The course will focus on reading, written communication, verbal communication, and non-verbal communication skills. An emphasis will be placed on weekly submissions, and peer feedback, to allow you to practice and improve your skills.

You will learn how to effectively read and analyze texts as a precursor to developing your own written communication skills. You will then practice crafting clear communications by learning about topics such as writing structure and organization, grammar, audience awareness, and the iterative writing process. Next, you will move on to verbal communication and will learn how to confidently and skillfully deliver effective oral presentations. Finally, you will learn about the impact of non-verbal communication on how your messages are received.

The course will culminate in a project that will require you to develop and implement a strategy for communicating a technical topic to a non-technical audience.
