Building Problem Forums: On Troubleshooting in the Professional Writing Classroom
Vealey, Kyle P.
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v79 n2 p200-206 Jun 2016
This article describes the use of "problem forums" in undergraduate professional writing courses as a technique for facilitating and sustaining learning from increasingly complex, messy, and wicked problems that are characteristic of 21st-century work. Problem forums are designed to scaffold project team discussions of rhetorical, technical, or collaborative difficulties that have unexpectedly slowed or halted their work. Problem forums are thus intended to facilitate and sustain continual learning on project teams.
