It may be summer, but school’s just starting for technical communicators! We’ve got some great webinars and online courses coming up. Make the most of your membership by beefing up your education report card.

This Week:

You’ve got the words down pat, and you’re a pro at writing and editing. But when it comes to design, well, that’s a different story. Fear not! UX/UI Basics for Technical Communicators will illustrate the basics of how to use user interface (UI) design to improve the user experience (UX). Join Jessica Kreger, Senior Manager of Client Training and Education at TradeStation, on 12 July from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT (GMT-4). 

Next Week:

We’ve got a FREE STC Chapter/SIG Member-Only Webinar coming up next week: Developing Quality and Consistency Guidelines for Financial Services Content. Presented by Ann Rockley of The Rockley Group, inc., this free webinar will help technical communicators navigate the complex compliance and regulatory requirements of the financial services industry, and balance those requirements with the technical communicator’s need to create clear, concise content. Join Ann on 19 July from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT (GMT-4). 

Next Month:

In an increasingly international business context, content must be tailored to diverse intercultural audiences. What skills to technical communicators need to succeed in this globalized world? International and Cultural Content Design, a new four-week online course with Kirk St.Amant, is designed to provide technical communicators and content producers  with the foundational knowledge and skills they need to effectively understand and address different international situations and settings. The course begins Tuesday, 1 August and runs through 22 August at 2:00-3:00 PM EDT (GMT-4).

One of our most popular online courses is back and better than ever! TechComm Fundamentals Bootcamp (formerly TechComm 101) with Leah Guren has been retooled to make it even more relevant to new technical communicators and those looking for a refresher. TechComm Fundamentals Bootcamp is the fastest, most efficient way to jump-start your career in technical communication.
