Abstract

In engineering departments, technical communication is often taught by non-specialist academics on an ad-hoc basis. This paper shows the benefits - to students, employers, and universities - of taking a more programmatic view of such teaching. Specifically, we show how more thoughtful design of assignments and the rubrics and markers for assessing these can allow a single technical communication professional to effectively teach 1000 students or more.
