re: I am in a technical writing/web design course. For our major project,
we are putting together a comprehensive web site that would be a resource
for graduate level technical writing teachers teaching a course similar to
the one we are taking. As part of this project I must compile a list of a
few topics concerning technical writing on a web site that the professor
might wish to cover in such a course. ... Could anyone offer any advice on
topics a professor would want to cover in such a course? Ashlei Woelk

A review of the archives for TECHWR-L
( will very likely reveal
several recurring discussions, and this could provide good input to this
project. My sort-of "favorites" include

relations with Subject Matter Experts (SME)
user testing of draft manuals
tech writer as ergonomics consultant
will print be replaced by Web pages?
how to organize a tech writing department (in firm, not teaching in college)
tech writing relationship to marketing/sales

<grin>One may note in searching such archives that use of more descriptive
message subjects than "tech writing" faciltates this searching!</grin>
