    Abstract

    Technical writing service courses have become a mainstay across institutions of higher education. However, the heterogeneous student population that these courses attract leads to generic instruction that often contradicts how students are expected to communicate within their respective fields. This workshop aims to provide participants with a basic introduction to data-driven learning as well as how to use corpora and text processing tools to facilitate more tailored technical writing instruction.
