Improving Tech Comm Using Road Signs and Everyday Experiences

Every day, we communicate in dozens of different ways. In this presentation, the speaker will explain how to use everyday experiences like driving, watching television and cooking to improve technical communication. Then, she will connect these principles to Donald Norman’s revolutionary book “The Design of Everyday Things.”

The speaker will discuss best practices for using everyday circumstances to improve professional writing. Attendees will engage in a discussion about simplifying infographics to direct users like road signs guide drivers; instructing users like good recipes guide bakers; and identifying products like great flags distinguish countries.
