Reanimating the Body of Knowledge: TC BOK 1.4

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Monday 6th May, 2013

8:30am to 9:30am (EST)

Technical communication has long needed a Body of Knowledge to be recognized as a profession. Come and see the latest development of the beta knowledge portal known as the TC BOK (Technical Communication Body of Knowledge). A team of STC members and staff has been redeveloping the TC BOK; reinvigorating its design, content, and delivery; filling in gaps in content; and integrating the development site with the STC website. This presentation reveals a portion of the new beta version and explains how we got there. Come and see how you can use and contribute to this important resource.
