This site will be used to post updates on my EDC&I/TC 436 instructional design project. I will use this space for progress reports, resource aggregation, questions, testing, and a laundry list of other things that I have not considered yet.
My project will focus on one of the primary concepts that I try to communicate to my own students in TC 231, Intro to Technical Writing: the importance of audience analysis. My preliminary idea is to blend instruction with practice in an interactive setting. For example, they will learn the characteristics of the four audience groups we discuss in one portion while actively creating their own audience personas in another.
The use of video is being considered as well.
