by Alex Auda Samora from Noun ProjectSTC Certification: Why, and Where are we Now?

STC re-launched its certification program in 2016. Alan will discuss the design of the STC certification program, lessons learned from the original certification program, who might consider certification and why, and steps to become a Certified Professional Technical Communicator.

by Dusan Kitic from Noun ProjectAudio Editing Tips: 3 Easy Steps to Improved Voice Recording
with Robert Hershenow

Robert Hershenow's affinity for audio recording spans not only decades but also diverse technologies, and over the years he has developed efficient methods for producing high-quality recordings on the cheap. This session explores the editing steps that are critical to professional-sounding recordings. Examples will focus on voiceover and will use Audacity (the free, open-source audio recorder and editor), but the concepts are applicable to any recorded content and any editing software.

by Luis Prado from Noun ProjectThe Science and Psychology of Persuasion 
with Barbara Beresford

A successful technical communicator not only manages deadlines and deliverables, but also manages his or her influence with coworkers and superiors.

If you have strong writing and editing skills, but are not as schooled in the soft skills needed to understand and positively influence the people with whom you work, attend this presentation on psychology and persuasion:

  • Learn about recent research on the conscious/unconscious minds that affect our behavior and decision-making
  • Identify how well people know themselves and what they want
  • Learn to use this information to understand and influence others
