What: STC-ETC Presentation by Em Turner Chitty


Join us for a presentation by Em Turner Chitty! Em teaches both at the University of Tennessee’s English Language Institute and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. At ORNL, she teaches 12-hour courses on technical writing for research scientists, engineers, and support personnel. In addition, she provides individualized language support for ORNL staff who require in-depth English language assistance in writing or presentation skills.

Em’s unique approach to how English language history is mirrored in the vocabulary choices we make helps writers understand the power of “plain language” as well as how to “translate” among the different levels of formality available in English.
