Madhu G will be presenting at TCUK16 on “Technical Writing and Instructional Design: A great confluence!”
Technical Writing (TW) and Instructional Design (ID) are two professions that have one basic element in common – information design. Both professions aim to provide informative content to the audience. Technical Writers stand to benefit from using the principles of ID.
In this presentation, I will provide pointers on how some of the ID principles can be used in TW to enhance:
- Content planning and authoring.
- Seeking customer feedback.
- Providing alternative learning solutions.
