About this Course

In the Understanding Effective Communication, Capstone learners apply the lessons of Business Writing, Graphic Design, and Successful Presentation to create a portfolio of work that represents their mastery of writing, design, and speaking and that expresses their personal brand.

The portfolio includes three individual elements—a written memo, a slide deck, and a presentation—integrated around a single topic.

This self-designed “Challenge Capstone” allows learners to engage meaningfully in their world by choosing a project relevant to their current job or by volunteering to write, design, and speak for a social organization of their choice.

By successfully undertaking the Capstone, learners will accomplish three main goals: 1. They will hone their writing, design, and speaking skills and build a portfolio for a job search and/or professional application; 2. They will shape these skills into a unique brand identity; and, if they choose, 3. They will undertake a transformative effect in the world around them.

Ultimately, the importance of the Capstone portfolio is greater than the sum of its individual parts. Its true goal lies in each student’s personal transformation and expression of their best selves. We invite you to unleash your skills and we can’t wait to see the results!

What You Will Learn

  • Present yourself effectively to the world through writing, design, and presentation.
  • Build a final portfolio of work that represents your personal brand.
  • Improve your work through self-evaluation and peer feedback.
