This course will prepare you to produce instructive, informational, and persuasive documents based on well-defined and achievable outcomes. Technical documents are precise, concise, organized, and based on complex information. The purpose and target audience of each document determine the style that an author chooses, including document layout, vocabulary, sentence and paragraph structure, and visuals, among other factors. To this end, this course will teach processes for analyzing writing contexts and producing effective, clean, and reader-centered documents in an efficient manner.
Participants gain an understanding and knowledge of genres such as reports, feasibility studies, proposals, and specifications. Participants will construct a logical outline of a technical document; write with awareness of expository techniques such as definition, classification, and causal analysis; and design an effective format and layout for a technical publication. A writing project chosen by the participant will be critiqued.What you'll learn:
