Project-based learning has long been a hallmark of technical communication academic programs. However, with advances in technology, globalization, and geographically dispersed workforces, students must also learn how to conduct projects as members of virtual teams.
This session will explore the implementation of an integrated multimedia project assignment for online graduate students and on-campus undergraduate students. Advantages and project outcomes will be discussed as they relate to students, organizations, and educators. Students will share their experiences, reactions, and perceived benefits from the recent project.
