Technical communication is finally coming to an end, it has been a meaningful journey equipping us with writing and oral skills that will benefit us in the near future. Through this short twenty hours course, I have learnt to how to write a formal email, a good product description summary, citation in APA style and a persuasive technical proposal as well as learning to give a good and persuasive pitch.
Through this course, I manage to get a chance to work with different groups of people, which allows me to know them and their working style better. I am also grateful that my module tutor, Brad was patience with me and for his guidance throughout this course.
I have learnt from this course that effective communication is important, people don't always pay attention to the message you are trying to convey. Which is why it’s important to give a good pitch to catch their attention.
After going through all the lesson, I have gain confidence in writing a proper proposal. However, there are still rooms for improvement as I am pretty weak in my grammar. I would like to improve my oral skills as I lack the enthusiasm when presenting or giving a pitch.
I foresee that there will be more report writing throughout my course of studies, I believe that all the skills learnt from this module will be put into good use.
