Evaluating Academic Technical Communication Programs: New Stakeholders, Diverse Goals.
Anderson, Paul V.
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v42 n4 p628-33 Nov 1995
Discusses three challenges (dealing with program diversity, accommodating conflicting emphases, and precipitating positive change) in evaluating academic technical communication programs. Outlines an approach to program evaluation that redefines the stakeholders to include a wide range of partners in both workplace and academy, and that uses a multiperspective, multivoice evaluation process that respects the validity of each group's perspective.
