Final Project/Paper Assignment

Here is your final project and paper assignment for the course, both due Thursday, May 23, 2013

1. Final Project: Re-envisioning A Technical Writing Document

Choose a piece of paper-based technical writing — a set of instructions, a how-to guide, a support document, a document that provides a summary of a larger and more complex technical paper — and create a new version of it that puts it into digital form. Your new document should embody the following principles:

1. Interactivity

2. Usability

3. CRAP design principles

4. Socially connected networks

Your redesigned tech-writing project should be posted on the course blog (or linked to from it) as a post with the tag “finalproject.” You should also include photos or scans of the original so that the view can compare it with your re-invented version (you do not have to own the original — you can find a scanned version on the web).

2. Write a short 2-3 page paper explaining your transformations, justifying them with references to our course texts and to other reputable tech-writing resources that you can find on the web. This paper should be emailed to Prof. Gold at mgold@citytech.cuny.edu

Please email me with any questions you might have.

And please update your google doc to ensure that ALL of your course assignments are listed there.

 

Thanks for a great semester!
