Implementing Plain Language as a Strategic Priority
with Sarah Slabbert and Nadja Green,
Plain Language Institute, SA
We are just finishing up the first offering of our Advanced course on strategic planning for plain language. It is also the first course offered on the Academy's new Moodle platform.
Implementing Plain Language in an organization is almost invariably a challenge and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Most of our students have practical experience of this challenge and they therefore expect the course to offer solutions that they can apply. Moodle enables us to listen to our students in one-on-one conversations and to understand their unique needs. Moodle also makes it easy for us to continuously improve our course and add new learnings as we go along.
We enjoyed working with Moodle and students are giving us positive feedback. Sarah and Nadja.
Next Implementing Plain Language as a Strategic Priority starts August 16.
