Convey technical content to any audience through specific, clear and concise technical writing.

Technical writing is unique because of its specialized content. It must convey objectivity and reach both technical and nontechnical audiences with exactness and clarity. Along with writing emails, letters and reports, the technical writer must be able to prepare definitions, physical descriptions, product specifications, procedures, test and laboratory results, and many other kinds of documents.  This seminar offers you a battery of tools and techniques to help you jumpstart the writing process on any challenging technical writing endeavor. You will learn ways to defeat writer’s block, procrastination and writer’s anxiety, as well as how to develop a better understanding of readers’ needs and expectations. You will also discover principles and approaches that cover a broad range of industries and topics and get hands-on experience improving your technical writing ESP—efficiency, sufficiency and proficiency. In addition, you will receive expert feedback on your work from an experienced writing consultant to help fine-tune your new skills.

    great experience...first time doing a web based instruction

  • Catherine L., , International Joint Commission Jun 9, 2020

    good course on basics of technical writing. Would have liked a little more time to get into some more specifics on document types and pitfalls. Although that could come in a more intermediate course perhaps.

  • Kim L., , Howard Hughes Medical Institute Inc Jun 9, 2020

    Great Support from Steve for tech and Janet did a great job with time and information but this class could be extended to an additional day with more time to maybe write up a full document.
