I have been teaching that type of course several times here in
Columbus OH as an adjunct for the Columbus State Community College's
"Business and Industry Division." It's a once/quarter one-day seminar
(I highly recommended that it be at least 2 days) and the audience has
been various people from govt agencies and companies, some engineers,
some human resources, some secretaries! An interesting mix and a
working group! Many of them wanted some real basic grammar refreshers!
Among other things, since I've got a university Freshman comp teaching
background, I would condense my 10-wk course in teaching various essay
forms, letters, audience analysis, etc, into one day! (whew!) Check
out your community college, and see if they do something like this, or
if they don't, let them know that it IS done elsewhere, and it is
practical and wanted!

T'whirler's -
We are sending some of our software developers to
remedial writing courses
(can you believe it?).

Two things I'm hoping someone can help us out with:

1. We are looking at the courses put on by a company
called "McLuhan and
Davies Communications" in Toronto.
Has anyone taken any of their courses or know anything
about them you can
pass on?

2. Can anyone recommend good courses in writing basics
for non-writing
professionals? These would need to be accessible from

Many thanks in advance!!
