Practitioners, Research, and Journals

Room 42
Practitioners, Research, and Journals
/

Why should practitioners care about research and journals? Ah, that’s the question, isn’t it?

George Hayhoe worked a technical communicator in industry for 17 years, taught for 19 years, and has always spent part his career editing journals like STC’s Technical Communication and the IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication. He has co-authored and co-edited three books, including “A Research Primer for Technical Communication.”

George says that these three things—professional practice, teaching, and journal editorship—have informed his approach to the role of the technical communicator. In this session, learn more about how practitioners and researchers work together to advance the profession.

We’re looking forward to exploring the answer to this question and others in Room 42.
