I am certain that this semester will present a memorable experience forus all. I thrive on challenges and new opportunities and I’m glad to share the unique experience of watching each of you develop as competent communicators in your personal and professional lives. The ability to communicate is an essential skill that employers require of their employees.Therefore, I hope that each of you will gain something of value from this course. Likewise, I want each of you to improve your communication skills—for this will give you more confidence when going on a job interview, building healthy relationships, or even making an impromptu presentation. I want to emphasize that education is not only important for obtaining your dream job, but to sharpen your critical thinking skills in an effort to transform your community.There are a range of academic objectives that we will cover in this course. Formany of you written and verbal communication will come natural, while forothers it will take time for you to find your rhythm. However, as the instructor ofthis course I want to foster an on-line environment that is team-oriented andconducive to learning. With this in mind, let’s co-create knowledge this semester—that means that I want to learn just as much from you, as you learn from me. Ibelieve in each of you and I wish you great success in this course and for thefuture! Prof Walker/ Prof.
