Body of Knowledge
For more than 50 years, the Society for Technical Communication (STC) has been the definitive resource on technical communication as well as an advocate for professional technical communicators. Access and contribute to STC’s continuously evolving technical communication body of knowledge.
In an effort to help create a complete resource for all things related to the field and practice of technical communication, STC has chartered a volunteer project to develop the Technical Communication Body of Knowledge (TCBOK).
As a volunteer-powered project, it is essential to identify experienced technical communicators, educators and instructors, and students that are willing to help populate the TCBOK. If you would like to be a part of the team that is constructing what will become globally recognized as the definitive online resource for information on the profession, please contact us.
