I had the privilege to teach structured writing at the first edition of the Postgraduate Course on Technical Communication at ISCAP (Portugal), sponsored by APCOMTEC, the Portuguese association for technical communication.
The seven students were working professionals looking forward to change or improve their careers. I was surprised when these students started to question their ability to break into the field, because they will be better prepared than I was when I started. I found myself advising the students by sharing my experience in Portugal and elaborating on my deeper beliefs.
