Patrick Dias, Anthony Paré
Hampton Press, 2000 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 262 pages
This volume explores how written communication is structured and functions within academic and workplace contexts, how and to what extent writing in the university is preparation for writing in the workplace, and how classroom and workplaces constitute arenas for learning to write. Working from a qualitative approach, the research reported in this volume concentrates on university disciplines concerned with professional preparation and on related work settings.
