This introductory course is designed to teach the basic skills necessary to write nutrition- and health-related papers that are clear, accurate, and audience-appropriate. It is a practical review of writing and revision, and will enable students to develop a clear, fluent, and readable style. The course will include both individual and collaborative exercises and will require several writing and editing assignments, as well as rewrites. It is a prerequisite for NUTR 306, both of which build on the skills it provides. Designated time outside of the classroom is required for each student to participate in asynchronous activities such as recorded lectures, self-assessments, and video conferences.
