The four-day Workshop on Technical and Academic Writing jointly organized by Centre of Management and Humanities (CMH), PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh and Regional English Language Office (RELO), US Embassy, New Delhi, concluded today on 9th March.
Ms.Heather Mehrtens, English Language Fellow from RELO covered different areas of writing including Essay writing, Email writing, Statement of Purpose etc. through the error analysis approach. Working in teams and sharing their opinions, the students identified shortcomings in sample texts and rewrote them in the corrected version.
Prof. Manoj K Arora, Director, PEC, encouraged the Centre to collaborate with RELO, specialists in the field of Teaching English to the Speakers of other Languages and highlighted the importance of developing a global perspective to the art of communication.
Prof. Sharda Kaushik, Head, CMH, remarked that the teaching of different forms of writing has to be addressed at different levels such as language, format, structure, content and style. Once the students have understood and absorbed the correct and creative ways of using these elements of writing, they are likely not to falter in establishing the network of written communication.
Ms.Neha Chaudhary, Coordinator, emphasized the significance of technical writing which helps an individual to connect with others in large numbers through email and letters.
