Tips for technical writing

Technical Writing Seminar 2014 Winter

The Technical Writing & Presentation Courses were originally designed to stress speaking and presentation skills, however, classes specially focusing on writing skills are in high demand. In response, KIO will be holding 2-day technical writing seminar.

Seminar Information

•The 1st day will cover basic points which should interest those unfamiliar with the writing process and what is expected in the academic world versus what is expected the professional world.
•The 2nd day deals with more advanced points of using English properly which should interest those generally familiar with the process but are more interested in the fine points of producing “quality” technical writing for academic, scientific journals.
