The course addresses the fundamentals of communicating technical information that is clear, concise, and concrete to a wide variety of stakeholder types.
The course is based on two key assumptions. First, communication is rhetorical: effective communicators plan, draft, and revise formal documents and presentations with respect to their specific audiences and purposes. Second, communication practices are guided by convention and so change over time and differ between disciplines. Becoming an effective technical communicator requires an ability to do more than memorize rules: you must also learn to recognize principles and the variables that condition a given communication event against an ever-evolving cultural landscape.
