Engage Activate

Want to incorporate presentations into your course? Do the students in your research seminar need a jump-start on their first papers? Want students to receive feedback on poster drafts from trained coaches before you review them?

Engage our team to

  • deliver communication workshops tailored to specific projects or assignments (e.g., design reports, papers, presentations, posters)
  • develop customized instructional materials featuring examples from your course
  • train TAs to provide feedback on assignments
  • have engineering communication coaches work with your students one-on-one (e.g., feedback on posters or oral presentations)

To discuss ways we can support communication in your courses or to request a workshop, please contact us.
