COVID-19 has caused global changes in the way of teaching and learning. The new forms of teaching how to write papers to Engineering students that began in 2020 may become a new pedagogical alternative. The literature had already shown the advantages of using technology for teaching, highlighting the possibilities of collaboration, and to give students a leading role in the development of their learning process. The article shows the experience of teaching writing conference papers to Engineering students under a virtual environment. The study was experimental with 54 students in two groups: Control Group and Experimental Group. The students were evaluated through an instrument that considered three dimensions: planning, writing and reviewing. Results demonstrated that it is possible to develop technical writing skills in Engineering students in a virtual environment.
