Design Discourse: Composing and Revising Programs in Professional and Technical Writing
Edited by David Franke, Alex Reid, and Anthony Di Renzo
Designed and Copyedited by David Doran
Design Discourse: Composing and Revising Programs in Professional and Technical Writing addresses the complexities of developing professional and technical writing programs. The essays in the collection offer reflections on efforts to bridge two cultures—what the editors characterize as the “art and science of writing”—often by addressing explicitly the tensions between them. Design Discourse: Composing and Revising Programs in Professional and Technical Writing offers insights into the high-stakes decisions made by program designers as they seek to “function at the intersection of the practical and the abstract, the human and the technical.”
