Week 3 Discussion: Format and the Professional World
“Format and the Professional World”
Please respond to the following:
- There are several different formats (emails, letters, reports, slides, and more) we will study this quarter. How important is the format in connecting with an audience? How might the audience make a difference in how you format and present communications? Defend your answer with support from your course materials and/or relevant experience.
- Consider a time when the way a message was delivered to you made a difference. What were your expectations about the message and how were they influenced or changed by the manner in which the information was delivered?
After you post your response to the above questions, don’t forget to reply to another student’s response as well to help the discussion move along. You can also respond to other topics your instructor will post in this discussion thread throughout the week.
