Course Outline:
This course is designed to help you develop skills that will enable you to produce clear and effective scientific and technical documents. We will focus on basic principles of good writing-which scientific and technical writing shares with other forms of writing-and on types of documents common in scientific and technical fields and organizations.
As part of this technical writing and design through group communication course, we will use communication skill games and research with LEGO and 3D Printing to improve communication within your team, and help you write design documents. Prototyping with LEGO and 3D Printing will help us learn something in a new way. We will learn about the use of such tools for engineering team-based communication, collaborative product development, planning and design, analysis and execution. For class assignments, we will design innovative products with LEGO, write and speak about the design in English, and work towards group analysis and peer-review.
As a team, we will talk about what happened? What worked well? What didn’t work so well? What about the team communication? Could we use LEGO and 3D Printing to learn about another topic? Could we use a “toy” to learn about history, science, art or math? Could we design a futuristic product with LEGO and 3D Printing?
We will design products, focus on developing technical reports on product design, prepare recommendations and constructive criticism (product reviews) for improvement, and make digital storytelling-based presentation about the designed product.
