Course Description

Speedwriting is for anyone out there who needs to write faster. You may be a student struggling frantically to make sense of the lectures that you attend, but your method of taking notes only seems to capture about one-third of the material that is provided; when it comes time to take the exam, you find that you are not well-prepared. Or perhaps, as a student, whether high school, or a Ph.D. candidate, you need to write a paper, you need to do it fast, but you have to make sure you aren't in danger of plagiarizing the material that you used in your research. Or, maybe you're a writer, and you need to write or rewrite articles faster, or you have to get a bigger project written--a thesis, dissertation, or book--and fast. How do you do it?
 

This Speedwriting Course will answer all of these questions, helping you toward your academic and professional goals. You will learn the techniques that the masters use when it comes to capturing information that is provided in the form of a lecture or presentation. You will also learn how to take notes that will provide the necessary information, help you write your paper fast, and in your own words. So why not join us today?
