ENGL 379

Principles and Practices in Technical Communication
This course introduces students to writing that communicates information, often of a technical nature, to non-experts who must use or act upon that information. Students will analyze and practice a variety of genres, including memos, reports, instructions and proposals; learn techniques of audience accommodation; and explore rhetorical principles involved in researching, designing, drafting and testing effective documents. Students can expect to work collaboratively and to develop their skills in producing multimedia documents.
