Writing Workshop Series

ISSS is pleased to partner with the Writing Center on a series of writing workshops exclusive to international students!

Emailing Netiquette: Academic and Professional Communication

Thursday, February 6, 2019 | 12:00-1:00 p.m. | Writing Center, Clark Hall Rm. 124

All emails are not created equal. An email to an employer or faculty member should be written in a different style and tone than one to a friend. You want to get it right the first time! This workshop will teach you all about professional and academic emails and appropriate "net etiquette." Lunch is provided.





PowerPoint like a Pro: Making Slides and Data Visualizations that Don’t Suck

This event has been cancelled.

Thursday, March 19, 2019 | 12:00-1:00 p.m. | ISSS 1st Floor Conference Room

Slides and data visualizations can make or break your presentation. This workshop is meant to teach design principles and introduce online tools for non-designers. Before and after examples will be used to showcase how to use color schemes and white space, to contrast elements, and to communicate main ideas effectively. Students should bring their own laptops for the slide redesigning. Lunch is provided.





Common Grammar & Punctuation Errors

Thursday, April 16, 2020 | 12:30-1:30 p.m. | ISSS 1st Floor Conference Room

Have you had an instructor comment that your essay has excellent content, but your writing is weakened by too many serious grammar errors? In this workshop, we will review some of the most common grammar and punctuation errors in student writing, including run-ons, comma splices, and general punctuation misuse. Lunch is provided.
