Technical Writing

Introduction and Background

Technical writing is a broad term describing writing about a particular subject that requires direction, instruction, or explanation. It often involves the presentation of scientific and/or field-specific data through both words and graphics for fellow specialists and non-specialist readers.

This course will help participants write properly organized technical reports and other business-writing documents and will aid in streamlining in-house communications while reducing the need for re-writing, repetition, and clarification. The technical writing course will help participants improve their ability to write clearly and grammatically, to produce technical documents appropriate to their intended audience, and to know how to present top-quality documents.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Focus on grammar and style to effectively communicate
  • Explore appropriate styles of writing for specific technical purposes
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of a technical document
  • Develop strategies to successfully communicate technical information to specialists and non-specialists using graphically presented data, executive summaries, and other ways to highlight key information
