It starts tomorrow, 1 November, at 10:00 AM EDT (GMT-4), and runs through 13 December (skipping 22 November).
On Thursday, another favorite returns with Instructional Design for Technical Communicators with instructional design expert Saul Carliner. As a technical communicator, you may be called upon to create tutorials, courses, or other instructional materials.

Still looking to squeeze in some education this week, but don’t have the time to devote to an online course? We’ve also got a great webinar on the docket for tomorrow, 1 November: Building Competencies in Technical Communication. This presentation attempts to answer the question—how do technical communicators know the things that we know?—by examining and reporting on various sites for professionalization, learning, and growth across our field. Learn strategies to gain experience in the field, expand competencies, and understand challenges that face technical communicators. The webinar is tomorrow, 1 November at 2:00 PM EDT (GMT-4).
