Writing for Technical Professionals: Preparation and Planning

Being technically knowledgeable is a good start for anyone wishing to write about a particular technology. However, it is not a guarantee that what is written will achieve its ultimate goal. In fact, some of the greatest technical experts find it very challenging to write effectively on technical matters. While it is important to understand the subject matter, it is equally important to understand the audience and its needs. There are steps that all technical writers should follow before putting pen to paper, including defining scope, determining the objectives of the project, understanding the target audience, and planning the overall structure of the document. This course explores steps writers should take when embarking on a new writing project.
  • recognize a document's purpose in given examples
  • select an appropriate delivery medium in given scenarios
  • analyze a writing segment to determine the document’s appropriate audience
  • sequence the steps in planning a document in example form
  • identify how to integrate other authors' work into your draft
  • establish the purpose and an appropriate delivery medium in a given scenario

Writing for Technical Professionals: Effective Writing Techniques

Once you have planned the structure of a writing project, you need to plan your writing approach based on your target audience. You must take a different approach, for example, if instructing technical students how to implement a technology from the approach you would use to describe a technology's benefits to the general population. A different approach again will be appropriate if you want to explain the unique nuances of your invention to a group of peers. When you've clarified your audience, you begin writing in earnest, carefully avoiding common pitfalls such as using jargon inappropriately. This course explores basic writing techniques, page layout and design, and common writing mistakes to avoid. It also teaches fundamental underlying concepts of instructional, persuasive, and reference writing.
