Hello and Welcome to ENG 2700! To be in this course, you have decided to major in Professional and Technical Writing. That means that you will learn to build different writing skills, amongst others, over the course of your study here. This is the beginning.

This is an introductory course in effective professional and technical writing techniques and concepts. You will use digital media to communicate professional and technical information to a variety of audiences via written and oral presentations. You will also analyze a wide range of documents, study appropriate models, and practice collaborative research, writing, and presentation.

By the end of the semester, you will know and have experience with the conventions of writing situational analyses, proposals, progress reports, and usability tests.

This site supplements and works in conjunction with our corresponding Blackboard site.  You will use this site to retrieve documents (syllabus), to keep track of readings and assignments, and to post comments, when necessary.  You will use Blackboard site to engage in discussion board posts, submit assignments and quizzes, and other major work.  Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different components of the site.  You should check this site daily for updates.
