Coursera: First-Year Composition 2.0

 with  Karen Head
First-Year Composition 2.0 will help you to develop a better process and gain confidence in written, visual, and oral communication and to create and critique documents and presentations in college, in the workplace, and in your community. You will draft and revise the following assignments: a personal essay, an image, and an oral presentation.

You will develop confidence in the following areas:
  • Critical Thinking: Evaluate the effectiveness of personal essays, images, and oral presentations. Assess your work and the work of your peers. Reflect on your own processes and performance.
  • Rhetoric: Analyze the ways in which you and other communicators use persuasion. Think about and use context, audience, purpose, argument, genre, organization, design, visuals, and conventions.
  • Process: Apply processes (read, invent, plan, draft, design, rehearse, revise, publish, present, and critique).
  • Digital Media: Produce written, oral, and visual artifacts.

The course was quite well done and if offered again I think it will be even better. It is not a class to learn English so I think a good understanding of the language is important. The content and assignments give lots of opportunity to learn and this includes writing, visual and audio/video presentation. This class will challenge you to learn technology to assist your communication. I found it stimulating and at times a bit frustrating but by the end I was really happy with what I had learned.
