Story submitted by S&T students for CASE April newsletter:

In November 2023, Missouri S&T’s student design team Engineers Without Borders reached out
to the Department of English and Technical Communication for training in technical writing. In
response to this call, a team of Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) from the department
volunteered their services.

The major training need focused on collaborative authorship of technical documents such as
reports and proposals. The efforts of the GTA team exemplifies the GTAs’ commitment to
undergraduate education and Missouri S&T campus community so much that the training was
expanded to reach more design teams.

The training, which was held on February 15th, covered aspects such as structuring technical
writing, collaborative writing, multi-genre technical communication products, and hands-on
learning activities. The team members include Felix T. Nyikwagh, Priscilla Owusu-Danquah,
Frederick Sunkpal, Jude Enete, and Abigail Boafa.

This team of GTAs is open to offering similar training workshops or other tailored training
sessions for campus and community organizations. Please feel free to reach out to the
coordinator of the team, Felix T. Nyikwagh, at
