Technical Communication    1300-1350 MWF

This course will introduce the essential elements of technical communication. Students learn to analyze writing situations, including the purpose for writing, assumed audiences, and appropriate styles and tones. We examine various genres of technical writing throughout the semester. Students also practice drafting, evaluating, and revising professional documents. Through peer response, several writing assignments, and oral presentations, this course offers students the opportunity to improve their writing, editing, and speaking skills. (Group 1 or 5)
