I attended the SCBWI Writer’s Conference last week. Awesome had wonderful discussions with so many people including Kristin Nelson & Emma Dryden. All the wonderful illustrators I met too! I’ll miss it but it provided much needed friendships and inspiration to keep on writing.
Completed my Emmy voting! Can’t wait to see the results.
It was a tough vote with lots of exciting and interesting choices. I look forward to finding out who will be nominated and win this year. Game of Thrones? Empire? Kimmel? True Blood? Fallon?
Final Round of Voting in August
Two research papers Lu has written are now posted on the page Technical Writing, Editing and Publications Portfolio
Lu is currently consulting for Southern California Edison.
The faculty development center at the California State University Dominguez Hills has a new blog for faculty and Lu is currently a contributor for the blog series entitled, “The Challenge of Facilitating Successful Online Learning.“ The first in the series is titled Keeping Students Engaged In an Online Learning Environment.
It’s a new year everyone and I wanted to take the time to wish everyone an exciting and fresh start. I’d also like everyone to know that a new semester at California State University Dominguez Hills starts next week on 1/12/15 and I will be teaching classes for the College of Extended & International Education.
If you are looking to kick off the new year with adding new skill sets in your writing, getting a certificate or just a refresher and would like to learn online instead of driving to a University then check out the classes offered in the completely online certificate program in Technical Communication at CSUDH.
I teach the Advanced Technical Communications course and the Information Design course where we work on portfolio pieces providing the student with samples to present to potential employers as well as practical learning experience. I’ve had the privilege of having both international students from other countries such as Russia and Japan to local SoCal students so please take a moment to check out our program.
