Online Professional Communication

Our new online short course, Online Professional Communication, is designed with the modern professional in mind and draws on the experience of academics who specialise in communication, particularly in the areas of online professional communication and intercultural communication. Whether you have been working online for a while or had to move your work online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you probably noticed a shift in the way you collaborate with colleagues, clients and suppliers. Part of this change has to do with the specific challenges and opportunities of working online.

This four-hour course will explore different aspects of online working and collaboration highlighting how they link to personal, professional and cultural preferences. It will enable you to reflect on your current online communication practice and develop new strategies in order to enhance success.

This course is currently being run online.

This module is non-accredited and carries no credit points.
