The Art of Explanation

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Monday 6th May, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (EST)

Professional communicators explain ideas every day, but we rarely take a step back and think about the skill of explanation and what it can mean to our audience. Lee LeFever, the author of The Art of Explanation, will help you take a fresh look at what makes explanations work, how to plan an explanation and use media to make your explanations remarkable.
