Information Design & Development

This Level 9 certificate programme offers a pathway to the Postgraduate Diploma and Master's Degree in Information Design and Development (http://cs.cit.ie/idd).

Information Developers are individuals who bridge the gap between subject matter experts and that of the end user. Under the banner of information development, the role may also be referred to as technical communicators, documentation specialist, information architects, editor, or go by another name. Regardless of the name, information developers perform a broad range of job functions across diverse industries.

The Society of Technical Communication (STC), define information developers as individuals that communicate using an instruction based focus on technical or specialised topics using technology. Their primary role is to communicate information to users of products or services in a clear concise manner for diverse audiences and stakeholder groups. In essence, information development and technical communications ensure that designs, products, systems and methodologies are documented and conveyed to their target audience to maximise its business value to the organisation.

Please see http://cs.cit.ie/cert-idd for further details.
