Oral presentations for technical communication
Oral Presentations for Technical Communication provides what most technical communication books lack: clear, accessible instruction on speaking. This book helps professionals master public speaking in a technical or scientific environment, whether it be through traditional presentations with whiteboards and flipcharts or presentations with computer software such as PowerPoint. Unlike most general speech texts, which include examples from various disciplines, Oral Presentations uses specific examples from the fields of science and technology and shows how skilled technical communicators make complex information accessible to non-technical audiences. The first three parts of the book focus on basic skills and concepts, including four basic types of presentations relevant to technical communication. The last two parts introduce more advanced topics, such as legal, privacy, and censorship issues, and the changing nature of presentations in the digital age. Oral Presentations thus brings together the best, most current instruction from three fields: technical communication/rhetoric, speech communication, and computer and information technology. For professionals in public speaking, oral presentations, and technical communication.
