The material collected in this workshop report offers teaching techniques for technical writing instructors at universities and junior colleges. The variety of topics indicates both the broad impact of technical writing and the many specific needs of technical writers. The workshop's discussions and papers focused on a variety of needs and audiences faced by technical writing instructors, including writing engineering reports, company newspapers, and proposals combatting the "nominal style," writing the job application letter, ways in which the tutorial method and individualized instruction can be used in technical writing classes, technical writing as a general studies option or for special populations, and publication opportunities for technical writing instructors and other teachers.
