Joining the Engineering Community: How Do Novices Learn to Write Like Engineers?
Winsor, Dorothy A.
Technical Communication, v37 n2 p171-72 May 1990
Investigates how and when novice employees (who are also seniors at a cooperative engineering college) learn to write like engineers. Finds that students perceive abstract rules and training as least useful and view the embodied experience of models and interaction with experts as most productive, particularly when combined with practice and feedback.
