I. Course Objective
This course introduces the fundamentals of communication in a corporate environment. The topics to be discussed include, but…show more content… Even if you use another email provider, you must check your UIC email account. You will miss valuable information if you do not. Do not rely on any forwarding function; if too many people forward their UIC email to another provider, the other provider considers it spam and blocks all email originating from the UIC sender. If you don’t use email at all, then you should begin doing so, and check your UIC email account a minimum of 3-4 times per week.
Much of this course requires your submitting papers you have written (hard-copies of assignments, reports, PowerPoint slides) and copies of research you have done for each presentation (e.g., copies of pages from reference materials such as journals, books or magazines). Plan appropriately for this: not having sufficient funding in your student account for copying purposes is not an acceptable excuse for not submitting required assignments.
Remember, your instructor does not give you a grade – you earn your grade.
