October 29, 2018 – The term “best practices” gets a lot of play in our profession, but what makes a practice “best”? What criteria elevate a practice to be so highly esteemed? And just how far does that esteem extend? Are best practices constrained by context, or must they generalize across contexts to qualify as “best.”
This interactive workshop will involve groups of participants examining selected aspects of Tech Comm work, brainstorming best practices (or what participants think are best practices) that apply to those aspects, and then discussing the criteria or rationale that make those practices “best.” Groups will report the results of their brainstorming and associated criteria to the entire group, contributing to a lively discussion of best practices and the work we do as technical communicators.
Note: The public setting and workshop format will prevent remote access to this event.
A summary of each group’s brainstorming and criteria will be made available after the program.
Lunch is included in the cost of your ticket. Please review the menu online ahead of time to expedite food orders.
Come ready to engage and participate!
Ticket sales are closed. Stay tuned for our next event!
