A Technical Email as a Writing Assignment in an Engineering Laboratory Course
Our guest will be Matthew Rhudy, who will join our conversation by webcam to discuss his recent article in the journal Prompt, "Breaking Away from the Traditional Lab Report: A Technical Email as a Writing Assignment in an Engineering Laboratory Course." Rhudy's article presents and discusses an assignment for an upper-level controls course lab that is framed as an industry-oriented memo rather than the traditional "lab report" assignment. Participants are strongly encouraged to read Dr. Rhudy's paper in advance and bring questions and related ideas and experiences to share. Faculty are welcome to bring a TA to this conversation. Since lunch is being served, we ask those planning to attend to please RSVP as soon as possible. Participants are asked to read the article in advance and bring questions and related experiences to share For link to article, see event description.
Please note that this Workshop is for instructors: Duke faculty, graduate students, and other teaching staff. Thank you.
