About this item

For courses in Technical Communication.

 

Fully centralizes the computer in the technical workplace, presenting how writers use computers throughout their communication process.  

The networked computer, from smartphone to mainframe, has become the central hub of written, spoken, and visual communication in today’s scientific and technical workplace. Firmly rooted in core rhetorical principles, Technical Communication Strategies for Today presents computers as thinking tools that powerfully influence how we develop, produce, design, and deliver technical documents and presentations. This popular text helps communicators draft and design documents, prepare material for print and web publication, and make oral presentations. Speaking to today's readers, the narrative is “chunked,” so that readable portions of text are combined with graphics and can be “raided” by readers seeking the information they need.

 

Retaining these features, the Third Edition of Technical Communication Strategies for Today also marks an important shift to drawing readers’ attention to the centralization of innovation and entrepreneurship in the technical workplace. Revised chapters, new case studies, and new exercises and projects demonstrate that those who know how to write clearly, speak persuasively, and design functional and attractive texts will be the most likely to succeed in today’s innovation-based and entrepreneurial workplace.

 

Technical Communication Strategies for Today, 3rd Edition is also available via Pearson Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. Learn more.
