Rating
0.0 stars

Design Discourse: Composing and Revising Programs in Professional and Technical Writing addresses the complexities of developing professional and technical writing programs. The essays in the collection offer reflections on efforts to bridge two cultures — what the editors characterize as the "art and science of writing" — often by addressing explicitly the tensions between them. Design Discourse offers insights into the high-stakes decisions made by program designers as they seek to "function at the intersection of the practical and the abstract, the human and the technical."

Students take part in a hypothetical scenario that challenges them to inform customers at a local restaurant of how their use and disposal of plastics relates/contributes to the Great Pacific garbage patch (GPGP). What students ultimately do is research information on the plastics pollution in the oceans and present that information as a short, eye-catching newsletter suitable to hand out to restaurant customers. This activity focuses on teaching students to conduct their own research on a science-technology related topic and present it in a compelling manner that includes citing source information without plagiarism. By doing this, students gain experience and skills with general online searching as well as word processing and written and visual communication.

Rating
0.0 stars

This book presents technical writing as an approach to researching and carrying out writing that centers on technical subject matter. Each and every chapter is devoted to helping students understand that good technical writing is situationally-aware and context-driven. Technical writing doesn’t work off knowing the one true right way of doing things—there is no magic report template out there that will always work. Instead, the focus is on offering students a series of approaches they can use to map out their situations and do research accordingly.

Rating
0.0 stars

Students use the free computer game Pingus to learn how engineers, specifically environmental engineers, use their technical writing skills to give instructions and follow the instructions of others. Students learn to write instructions to express their ideas in clear, organized ways using descriptive, un-ambiguous sentences, as an example of one type of technical writing that important for engineers. The students write instructions enumerating how to beat a game level, which represents surveying that level for environmental problems. As a test of their instructions, students review each others' instructions and offer suggestions for improvement, and then revise their instructions to make them better. Students also see some examples of environmental problems.

WR 227: Technical Writing Syllabus

Course Description:

Students will learn the basics of technical writing in this course. Technical writing is all that professional writing, which is not popular journalism or creative writing. WR 227 studies the composition of reports required in the technical and business professions. The course focuses on producing usable, reader-centered content that is clear, concise, and ethical. It includes the procedures of fact gathering through both primary and secondary research, organization, graphic layout, and other methods of compiling data. Students will learn to locate and evaluate source information; quote, paraphrase, and summarize sources effectively; cite sources and format this information in a particular documentation style or with a style sheet. We’ll be producing memos, letters, reports, and job search materials.

Course Objectives Reflecting Expected Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this course a student will be able to:
• Use efficient and effective research techniques to gather primary and secondary data
• Present findings in a well-written and sufficiently supported report tailored to the needs of a specific audience
• Demonstrate different formats of technical writing as well as basic concepts of style and document design to increase readability of technical documents
• Incorporate and accurately document source information according to a specific documentation style such as MLA or APA
• Demonstrate collaborative writing skills
