OTHER NEWS AND EVENTS

NAEP and APU webinar
Tips on Improving Technical Writing
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
2:00 - 3:15 PM ET
To register please visit https://naep2016-3.splashthat.com
Please note that this is a free webinar so please register today.
Technical writing is a skill that develops over time and must be practiced. One primary consideration from the onset is the audience. Will the writing appear in a scholarly, discipline-specific journal? Are you crafting a compliance document or are you writing a project report for your funding agency? Understanding your audience focuses your writing in both style and content. The organization and written sections of your project will vary, based on the intended audience. This webinar addresses several types of professional writing, identifies important considerations, and offers writing tips to consider.
Speakers:
  • Kris Thoemke, Ph.D., CEP, APU Faculty Member, Senior Scientist at Coastal Engineering Consultants, Inc. and NAEP Board Member
  • Marie Campbell, President of Sapphos Environmental and NAEP Vice-President
  • Kelly Chinners Reiss, Ph.D., Program Director for Environmental Science at American Public University System
