Teaching Technical Writing Through E-Mail: Making Hyperspace Personal
Abstract:Due to the use of e-mail as online instruction, I am offering my university course on technical writing through e-mail. I e-mail lecture and assignments and moderate a Discussion List, which students and instructors use to replace "classroom discussions." I also plan to offer the course statewide through distancing learning, to students within our system and to professionals in business and industry who want to improve their writing skills. To complete this circle, I plan to invite local practicing professional of technical writing in industries and government facilities to take part in our Discussion List, so they can lend their on-the-job expertise to the students as the work through their assignments. It sounds smooth. But at least two problems are lurking.
