Technical Writing: Course Offerings in Kentucky Colleges and Universities (1980-81)
Applegate, Edd
Online Submission
The number of technical writing courses and programs in institutions of higher education has increased over the years. However, during the academic year of 1980-81 a study concerning the subject in Kentucky's colleges and universities could not be found. A questionnaire was designed to determine how many of the 42 Kentucky colleges and universities offered courses in technical writing for the 1980-81 academic year. (In the mid-1950s few-if any-courses in technical writing were offered by these institutions.) Based on the responses to the questionnaire instruction in technical writing was provided by more two-year public colleges than by two-year private, four-year public, or four-year private institutions. Consequently, educators at two-year private, four-year public, and four-year private institutions in Kentucky may wish to either develop courses in technical writing or increase instruction of the subject.
