IDPP Offers 'Preparatory English for Graduate Studies' Summer Course

CIDP students discuss studies photoThe Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) is offering a virtual English language preparation course from 21 May 2012 through 13 July 2012. The course, taught by IDPP Language Specialist Ms. Kelly Wiechart, will provide students the opportunity to refine academic English language skills.

The content-driven language instruction will focus on key academic and communication skills, and is especially tailored for public policy graduate students. The eight-week session will use a combination of real-time (synchronous) and on-demand (asynchronous) components.

Among other objectives, students will be able to sharpen their analytical reading and writing skills; analyze arguments, and synthesize information from a multitude of sources; present, prepare, and discuss academic explanations; and incorporate academic research strategies to effectively manage and process information.

The course is open to all current and incoming students in the Master’s in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) program without a cost. The IDPP welcomes outside participants, including individuals interested in applying to the CIDP program in the future, on an application and fee basis.
