Polishing Your Technical Communication Skills

AIChE Webinar
Originally delivered Nov 16, 2011

Skill at communication is a must-have for professionals. This webinar helps professionals and students polish their skill. Educators who teach communication courses will also find this webinar helpful.

The emphasis in this webinar is on written and oral communication. Our survey of engineers in 100 industries showed that audience analysis seems to pose the greatest challenge. Suggestions and activities are given to help improve audience analysis. Successful communications satisfy five criteria: audience, content, organization, style and form. Details are given on how to be effective in each area.

We improve our communication if we follow a problem solving approach for each of the four stages: prewriting, writing, polishing/revising and delivery. We provide evidence about the process of writing to guide our approach.

Please note that due to a technical problem, there is a two-minute delay after Donald Woods is introduced. We apologize for this inconvenience.
