• Technical Writing  

     

    This course includes the skills in verbal and written communication that students will need to be successful in the workplace.  They will  demonstrate proficiency in writing and presentation skills by producing different technical writing products, including formal research reports, formal presentations, and workplace writing (e.g., technical reports, manuals, explanations of how to understand or use a product or service, proposals, memoranda, cover letters). In creating those products, students will demonstrate an understanding of the context in which communication occurs, the ethical issues involved, how to identify and address the needs of audiences, and the methods and strategies for organizing and presenting information.
