Digital Foundations Workshop: Best Email Practices

With email serving as the primary method of digital communication in the workplace, it’s important to know how to send a good one. The process of sending a good email, though, goes beyond merely typing a message and hitting “send.” Good emails equally rely on the ability to compose and organize messages effectively. That makes it crucial to understand both the full functionality of email services and the etiquette of email correspondence. This workshop will help participants make the most of their email by applying appropriate discourse conventions, customizing settings, organizing messages, and prioritizing responses.

Led by Lacy Hope, Ph.D. Student, English

Digital Foundations Workshops

The CDSC offers a series of intensive workshops for WSU students seeking hands-on instruction in the foundations of digital literacy. Facility with digital tools has become a fundamental prerequisite for joining any contemporary profession and, as with reading and writing skills, college instructors across the disciplines expect students to arrive on campus with a foundational level of digital literacy. Such expectations mean that many students never receive explicit guidance in how to write emails, organize files, or engage in online communities. These workshops fill that general education gap by helping students cultivate essential skills and develop good digital habits for the future. We intend the workshops to serve all interested students, regardless of major or prior experience. Workshop sessions will be 30-40 minutes, with 20-30 minutes for questions and one-on-one assistance. Grad students, staff, and faculty are also always welcome.
