Making Communication Matter: Integrating Instruction, Projects and Assignments to Teach Writing and Design

ABSTRACT

An integrated technical writing and design course has been developed at Rowan University. This course was developed using aspects of project-based learning and recent discussions about design education, as well as pedagogical approaches from the write-to-learn and the writing in the disciplines (WID) movements. The result is a course where the writing and design instruction are highly integrated, resulting in improvements in both technical writing and engineering design.
