One skill this course has taught me is logical mapping. Before taking this course, I was never very good at mapping out my thoughts before attempting to write an assignment. I would usually just write until I got stuck then I would take a break and get back to writing eventually. This usually turned into a very long and drawn out process to write even a two-page assignment. However, whenever I attempted to create an outline of some sort, I would just feel like I was wasting time that could have been spent writing the actual assignment. After this course, I learned how to properly and effectively organize my thoughts before tackling an assignment. This skill will be very helpful in the future as I will likely be asked to write a proposal or memo as I pursue a career in the Civil Engineering field. Now that I know how to properly create an effective outline, my actual writing process has become significantly shorter.
