Genre-specific conventions of the Engineering Notebook.
Writing in Practice
First-year engineering students not only have to grapple with academic discursive practices specific to their discipline, but they also have to learn genre-specific conventions. The engineering notebook is one such genre common in the field of engineering. This article describes specific teaching strategies employed in the delivery of a workshop designed specifically for first-year engineers. The purpose of the workshop was to equip novice engineers with engineering notebook conventions that constitute a major literacy practice in their respective discourse community.
