The educational opportunities that you gain access to as a member of STC are well worth the price of admission. The Society for Technical Communication and its member Chapters and Special Interest Groups produce a host of seminars, online certificate courses, and webinars throughout the year that are widely attended and produce measureable value for members. Whether you're just starting out your career or an advanced practitioner, STC has something for you.
The Technical Communication Summit is one of the must-attend annual events for technical communication professionals from around the world. Each year, some of the most recognized names in technical communication give presentations, participate in panel discussions, and provide insight into where the profession is going.
The Society produces multiple live, one-hour, Web seminars each month on technical communication topics ranging from accessibility to user experience design. Expertise levels range from beginner to advanced with audio via the phone or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and the presentation via the Web.
This is an archive of STC seminars, free to watch at your leisure. The audio recording of the sessions has been synched up to the PowerPoint presentation and is available in an embedded video player. These sessions are for members only and you must log in to access them.
