The old saying, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime,” might be apropos for this month’s program from STC Houston’s Noel Atzmiller.
Teaching technical writing to engineers can be a challenge, and yet can help improve business communications greatly. When faced with such a task, hearing some “lesson learned” from other technical communicators who have met this challenge can be helpful.
Noel Atzmiller, Manager of Technical Publications at Baker Hughes, has led more than 30 technical writing teaching sessions to engineers. From these experiences, he has gathered several lessons learned that would be useful to other technical communicators who face this challenge.
Noel’s fast-paced presentation explains these lessons learned and provides many candid comments on “what works.” Noel kindly sent us his presentation – take a look to see how it could help you.
