Orienting Access in Our Business and Professional Communication Classrooms
Meloncon, Lisa
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v81 n1 p34-51 Mar 2018
A hallmark of business and professional communication is an emphasis on pragmatic but theoretically grounded work. Thus, business and professional communication scholars are ideally suited to turn the theories found in disability studies into practice. In this article, I do just that by creating a theory--orienting access--that draws on concepts from disability studies. Orienting access calls for business and professional communication faculty to consider alternate pedagogies to ensure that our classrooms are truly accessible to all students. It also models the behaviors to teach how to design and create information that is accessible for all audiences.
