How do you improve the quality of writing that your colleagues create? Personal critique creates tension. Formal training sessions are expensive and often ineffective. However, people respond differently to software. Educational advice delivered through software is unthreatening and can be delivered exactly when it’s needed most using software you already have. From company branding and the use of technical terms to sensitivity in language, you can personalize suggestions in PerfectIt to match your organization’s house style. In this webinar, we will explore best practices in designing that advice so that education is delivered effectively and inexpensively.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, participants should be able to

  • Identify barriers that prevent learning today
  • Recognize suggestions that can be automated to improve learning
  • Construct styles that are educational (relevant and comprehensible)
  • Plan continuous improvement so that education impacts improve over time

Target Audience

Writers and editors who are already customizing PerfectIt styles or who attended the advanced PerfectIt session at the AMWA 2020 conference
