The Art & Science of Technical Writing

Technical writing is often dense, confusing, and full of jargon – but good technical writing shouldn’t be. In fact, the secret to good technical writing is conveying complex concepts and ideas clearly, so they can be understood by expert and non-expert audiences alike.

The Art and Science of Technical Writing will help you develop your advanced writing skills. The course will teach you how to write efficiently, how to avoid ineffective writing, and improve your understanding of contemporary grammar.

Upon completing the course, you will be able to:

  • identify breaches of the fundamental principles of good factual writing
  • describe the features of writing that contribute to its usability and readability
  • apply design features to maximise comprehension
  • describe the parts of speech and the components of sentences
  • apply important rules of grammar and punctuation
  • write professional procedures and reports that mirror readers’ expectations.
