Abstract

Technical communication (TC) students who are familiar with component content management (CCM) and content strategy have better opportunities for job placement and for making carefully thought-through, rhetorically grounded choices in the workplace. In this article, we describe four ways of incorporating elements of CCM and content strategy into existing classes in TC. We demonstrate that even without a dedicated CCM/content strategy class, educators can help students gain familiarity with related methodologies, processes, standards, and technologies.
