About the Course
Poor written communication can taint you or your brand’s credibility and have an impact on the way you are perceived.
In Writing as Process, we cover a broad range of business writing – including business letters, emails, memos, reports, invitations, speeches, and interviews – and learn the specific functions of each, such as basic communication, conveying simple information, or persuasion.
We’ll teach you how to take information and compile it into a professional report, craft effective memos to different audiences, and more.
To be successful in a modern, professional setting, you need to be confident in business writing formats, as well as proficient at reformatting information to fit a required text type. This course will help you access and hone these skills, making your work noticeable for all the right reasons!
Below is a preview from the Writing as Process mini-course, taught by Dr. Sara Brown in summer 2020:

“The instructors were incredible—their standards were higher than I expected, and they really pushed me to bring my best to the work.”
Writing as Process is the second course in our Writing for Results badge. Though students may take our courses in any order, we do recommend starting with Nuts & Bolts, then proceeding to the next two courses in the badge: this course, Writing as Process, and Storytelling. Students may choose to complete a badge in its entirety or simply elect to take one or two courses from that badge that most address their professional development needs.
This course is 4 weeks long. Each week, you will have two 1-hour sessions of live instruction, and then 1-2 hours of homework. That means a total time commitment of no more than 12-16 hours! This length of time allows students to fully explore the course topic and develop strong foundational skills without having to commit to a lengthy training program.
Plus, you won’t need any fancy equipment to participate. As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, you can be a Signum Path student. Our program uses GoToWebinar conferencing software for live class sessions. Through the GTW interface, you can ask questions and submit comments to your instructor. The instructor can also allow audio for individual comments or group discussions, depending on the needs of the course. Video sharing is also available for demonstrations, presenting assignments, and other interactive elements.
This course will also use a Google Classroom that you will access through a Signum-provided email address. In that classroom space, you can view and submit assignments, check the course schedule, and discuss ideas with your instructor and fellow participants.
Writing as Process course cost: $225 for individuals / $495 for companies
We’re excited to help place you at the forefront of the jobs market!
