Event description

Description

Technical writing is usually the term given to writing about technical subjects, such as computers, machinery or equipment. This is the kind of writing one sees in instruction manuals, how-to books, and reference materials. This is a fairly narrow definition of technical writing.

A broader definition of technical writing is any writing in which the focus is on the correct, accurate and precise communication of practical information; information that is presented in order to instruct, guide, facilitate or train. Falling under this broader definition are reports, text books, records, submissions, plans and other documents that are not necessarily about technology.

An even broader definition of technical writing reflects its wide applicability to a large range of writing situations, from workplace writing to the highest levels of academic writing.

Almost all writing we come across in everyday life, in home and work, is technical writing (the exception being, of course, fiction books and magazines). The instructions that tell us how to assemble a set of shelves, a resume from a prospect employee, or a submission to a professional journal are all considered to be technical documents.

Learn to write technical and scientific documents, articles, papers, books, manuals and even product labels.

Technical writing is a skill required by all types of industries - from factories to research laboratories. It is a skill required by people in many professions - from consultants to teachers.

Aims

  • Identify a broad range of situations where technical writing is used and where you might gainfully apply those skills;
  • Present technical documentation for a variety of situations;
  • Determine how to write appropriately for a defined audience;
  • Develop formats for different documents that follow a logical appropriate structure;
  • Explain how to effectively collaborate with one or more people in the production of a technical writing assignment;
  • Write items of technical writing that are appropriate for publication in different types of periodicals including: popular magazines, industry magazines, scientific journals, newspapers and e-zines;
  • Write easy to follow, technically accurate instructions for a variety of processes, using a variety of equipment;
  • Write a formal proposal for a project;
  • Write in an effective and appropriate style of report, during, or on conclusion of a project.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

The course is far more involved than just reading and writing.

You will be researching, analyzing, interpreting and problem solving all sorts of things to do with technical writing. It is important to engage with the subject in a diverse range of ways; to both see and understand all of the possible applications for technical writing; but also, to engage with the same ideas in a range of different ways. When you look at a concept from different perspectives, your ability to work with it is enhanced and your capacity to remember what you learn is strengthened. Studying this subject should, and is, more than just encountering it. It is learning it. If you want an encounter, buy a book on technical writing, but if you want to learn it properly, you need a substantial course like this.
