This course emphasizes the interpretative and problem-solving processes associated with producing effective technical documents as a part of a community of practice. Students will study the practices, genres, audiences, and situations related to professional settings, the contexts in which writing occurs, the processes involved in individual and collaborative projects, and the production of technical documents. This course is a required course for both technical communication certificates.

All assignments will be submitted through You will need to create an account at in order to submit your assignments. This account is free. I will be creating a folder for each of you using your last name. Each of these folders will contain another folder called Ready for Tracy. I will assume that any documents placed into the Ready for Tracy folder are ready for grading. When responding to assignments, I will open a document and resave it with my initials with my comments and grade. You are welcome to save any other documents in this space.
