Computers and Technical Communication: Pedagogical and Programmatic Perspectives
Stuart A. Selber
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1997 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 414 pages
The essays collected in this volume address the full range of pedagogical and programmatic issues specifically facing technical communication teachers and programme directors in the computer age. The authors locate computers and computing activities within the richly-textured cultural contexts of a technological society, focusing on the technical communication instructional issues that remain most important as old versions of hardware and software are endlessly replaced by new ones.
