ENC 3250, Section 1: Professional Communication Spring 2011 Tuesday 6-8:50pm Instructor: Dr. Lori Coffae Office: TBA Office Hours: Tuesday, 5-6pm e-mail: [email protected] And by appointment Phone: N/A "Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature." ~ Tom Robbins ENC 3250, Professional Writing, is an upper-division course offered through University of Central Florida's Department of Rhetoric and Writing. Your participation in ENC 3250: Professional Writing will help teach you how to assess and create a variety of professional documents. In this class, we will work together as a virtual community to develop our skills as professional communicators. The course is based around writing for either a professional career position or graduate school admission. Assignments, then, will encourage students to explore discourse communities and rhetorical contexts in order to create usable and effective documents for future professional endeavors. Remember, the purpose of a college education is not to promote mediocrity but instead to awaken the drive, determination, and talent locked within us. A college education is, therefore, not meant to be easy, but is meant to be meaningful. Our objectives, then, include becoming more adept critical thinkers and problem solvers, more effective communicators, and better rhetoricians. You should complete the course as more confident and capable thinkers and writers. Course Prerequisites Before enrolling in this course, you should have taken ENC 1101 and ENC 1102 (or just ENC 1102 if you exempted ENC 1101) at UCF, or you must have equivalent transfer credit for these courses. Also, please refer to the Syllabus and Expectations for Online Courses for a detailed discussion of the personal qualities, computer skills, and tools you should have to succeed in this class.
