Room 42 is where practitioners and academics meet to share knowledge about breaking research. In this episode, George Hayhoe explains the reasons why collaboration between both academics and practitioners serves the entire technical communications profession.
Season 1, Episode 1 | 54 min
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.
Why should practitioners care about research and journals? Ah, that’s the question, isn’t it? We're looking forward to exploring it in Room 42.
