About this Abstract
Meeting MS&T22: Materials Science & Technology
Symposium Curricular Innovations and Continuous Improvement of Academic Programs (and Satisfying ABET along the Way): The Elizabeth Judson Memorial Symposium
Presentation Title Helping to Prepare Students for Communicating in the Professional World
Author(s) Gregg M. Janowski
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Gregg M. Janowski
Abstract Scope One of our educational responsibilities is to ensure that our graduates can write professionally, which is part of EAC/ABET Criteria 3(3), “an ability to communicate effectively to a range of audiences.” Two aspects of written communications that should be emphasized are email and laboratory reports with an eye to the post-university world. This presentation will address a few of the tricks that have been successful in getting students to use email as a professional communications tool. It will also cover the "memorandum report" which is used to communicate laboratory results, as opposed to the academic paper format many of us use in our own publications. The format will be discussed, with tricks for grading and using the writing center.
