External Evaluation of Student Projects in Industry and Academia.
Two case histories, one in a business and one in an academic setting, demonstrated the potential for an interdisciplinary approach in teaching technical communication. Cooperation between a writer with little understanding of computer software and technicians lacking sophisticated writing skills resulted in concise, effective, and easy to understand sales literature. Similarly, guidance from both communication instructors and content area teachers helped college students produce technically advanced, effectively written, reports. (MM)
