Welcome to English 202CWelcome to the course website for Section 22 of English 202C (Fall 2010). This website will serve as a repository for the syllabus, assignment sheets, and resources for the course.
ENGL 202C, Technical Writing, serves students who are studying and preparing for careers in the sciences and applied sciences, including engineering. This advanced course in writing familiarizes students with the discourse practices prized in their disciplinary and institutional communities-- and helps them to manage those practices effectively in their own written work. In this way the course teaches those writing strategies and tactics that scientists, engineers, and others will need in order to write successfully on the job.
This course is connected to a collaborative research initiative that involves the English Department and Educational Technology Services. The purpose of this project is to explore issues integrating new work environments, technologies, and platforms, such as the Apple iPad, into higher education and student writing processes.
