Writing is a critical part of communication. If the reader cannot understand what you are telling them, how do you expect them to proceed? In this class we will review how to write effectively. In this in-person workshop, we will work on the writing styles needed to develop or respond to a request for proposal, as well as site memos, field reports, letters and formal reports with each one tailored to their intended use. The report themes will focus on risk assessment, construction sites, and site memos in general.
This is an interactive course and participants will need to bring their own laptop computer with the ability to use Microsoft Word software. The class handouts, class exercises, and report templates will be available to you for download once you have registered. You will need to load these onto your computer before the class.
Throughout the day the class will work on their laptops with specific writing exercises as well as editing and writing sample reports. In the afternoon we will examine submitted or other sample reports, and critique them as a group to discuss how they might be improved. Instructor will be Dr. Julian Dunster
