The Basics Of Designing A Technical Document.
This course is designed to introduce students to the concept of “technical drafting” and to help them better understand the process of drafting and how to use the technology available today.
The first part of the course is a “technical draft” where students learn the basics of designing a technical document and the tools that are used to produce them.
The second part of this course covers drafting in an “extensive” format, and introduces the “formula” of drafting.
The third part of course introduces students to an “objective” design process, which involves taking a design document and adding elements to it that can be considered part of a design, while also exploring other elements of the design process.
Each of the two parts of the “technical drafts” are taught individually, and the course focuses on specific design questions that students should be familiar with, and how the techniques that are learned in the second part can be applied to the problem of technical drafting.
The first part is designed for those who are already familiar with the basic concepts of designing technical documents and the concepts of “objectives,” “formulas,” and “design” in general.
This part introduces the concepts, the tools, and techniques that a designer uses to develop a technical draft, and shows how students can learn these tools.
The course also shows how to develop an effective document template, and covers some of the important design decision-making principles and principles for drafting.
Students learn the basic principles of drafting a technical workbook, how to create a design-ready document, and then apply those principles to develop and edit a technical paper.
The final part of technical drafts, called the “extended design,” is a more technical presentation of the same information, but the process is presented as a document with more design elements, and uses the same tools.
There are two different parts of this “technical design” course.
The “technical” part is taught in a two-day session.
The two-week session is designed primarily for students who have already had a good understanding of the basic design concepts.
The other part of “Technical Design,” is taught one-on-one for those students who need help understanding the principles of technical design.
