Each week in your Blog you will reflect on best practices and strategies for effective business communication. Posts should share personal experience along with demonstrated understanding of course material. Your posts should make a connection between your thoughts and experiences and professional or expert observations. Inclusion of links to relevant articles, essays, videos and other media is expected and will enhance and strengthen your work. Referencing the text and citing is not required but encouraged. Graphic presentation (no attachments, please!) is also a consideration. Be sure to review the Blog Rubric to see how you will be assessed.
