An online university offers introductory level courses that develop students’ academic and professional writing skills. The panel will discuss the courses, key assignments that enhance students’ communication, digital literacy, and job preparation skills, and other strategies that faculty can use to help students be more prepared for the job market.

This panel will consist of three speakers and two chairs who have taught and designed courses in composition and career preparation. After each speaker reviews key talking points about the courses, their purpose, and assignments that hone professional writing skills, the panel will encourage discussion from attendees regarding strategies for revising composition courses to better meet employers’ needs and to create courses that will help students better prepare for a competitive job market.

Panelists and the chair will also share assignment examples and encourage participants to discuss assignments that they use to help students develop professional and digital literacy skills.
