The Writing Process


A lot of time and effort is put into the development of documents and other forms of communication in the workplace. In this video, industry leaders reflect on the writing process that they have adapted in their respective workplaces. Most progress through a process consisting of "brainstorm," "draft," and "finalize," or "edit." They reflect on special aspects that they need to consider as they develop their documents, such as their audience, legal and contractual obligations, and technical verbiage. Finally, the professionals identify a need in higher education for students to focus more on the process of writing, rather than mastering the standard templates and formats that are typically taught in the classroom.
