The integration of Teaming, Writing, and Speaking (TWS) instruction series, designed to complement a junior-level chemical engineering laboratory survey course in chemical engineering (CHE 330), is discussed. The TWS module focuses on developing collaborative oral and written communication skills by addressing how members of teams prepare oral and written laboratory reports. Using in-class activities and discussions, the module applies topics in technical and small-group communication to real engineering teams and projects within the context of the course. The primary focus of the sessions is to allow students to bring the consultant a work-in-progress for discussion in a workshop setting.
