Workshop presented by Kay Losey, Professor of Writing, and Charles Lowe, Associate Professor of Writing
 

The email inboxes of faculty, staff, and students alike are constantly inundated with emails demanding their attention. Because of the burden of processing all that information, senders must work hard to write messages so that they get read and are understood. In this workshop, we'll practice strategies for crafting subject lines and introductory text that best communicate your message, describe methods for organizing the content of your emails, and discuss handling emails with file attachments and messages with complex HTML layout. Toward the end of the workshop, we'll share some tips for answering student email queries. Throughout we’ll invite participants to share their strategies as well.
