Order Instructions

Introduction

For this assessment, you will again use all four learning outcomes introduced in the course to write an email to your department. These learning outcomes you have used thus far and will be needed to complete this assessment include problem solving, innovative thinking, information and digital literacy, and communications. The email you will provide to your department summarizes the final decision regarding your suggested innovation. An email is a form of correspondence that should be concise and contain only pertinent information. Your audience for this assessment is your department. While there were many conversations to reach this decision, this audience just needs a high-level overview of the final decision. The tone of your email should be positive and apply the concept of goodwill: “Goodwill is the value of doing things that create mutual admiration and respect” (Smith-Worthington & Jefferson, 2019, p. 123).

 

There are two parts to this assessment:

 

Part 1: Email Purpose. In Part 1, you will explain how these elements look and feel when they are included in an email:

What is the tone and formatting of an email?

For what type of audiences are emails appropriate?

What kind of planning would you do when crafting an email?

How do you address the audience in an email?

What is the proper length of an email?

Part 2: Email Recommendation. In Part 2, you will create an email that you could send to the department to summarize the final decision regarding your suggested innovation.
