Abstract
Strategies in Technical Writing is an Open Education Resource text designed for community-college-level students being introduced to technical writing conventions. The text focuses on the main genres involved in professional communication, the writing situation, research, and citation. This text was adapted by Lumen Learning from materials developed by Dr. Elizabeth Lohman as part of the Z Degree Program and originally provided by Tidewater Community College. Technical Writing is a modified version of the Lumen Technical Writing book from the SUNY OER textbook list. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyrighted by Lumen Learning. It was then heavily redeveloped by Joshua Dickinson, Associate Professor of English at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. The text includes a list of changes.
