Research and publication in the field of technical communication largely takes place within universities where folks are trained in how to produce reliable and valid research. However, much of the innovation in the field takes place in industry, among practitioners who are working out on the front lines.
These practitioners often have not had training in how to conduct reliable and valid research that can be published and/or instigate needed changes within their workplaces.
In this Room 42, join Pam Estes Brewer to discuss how you might take your research ideas and implement research that is both reliable and valid—research that can be published, build change that is needed in your organizations, and support your career growth.
