Mirel, Barbara
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v12 n1 p7-49 Jan 1998
Explores the practical implications of constructivist theory for documentation that is targeted to complex tasks and experienced users. Examines the conceptual underpinnings of current task-oriented documentation and proposes why it falls short for experienced users and complex tasks. Discusses constructivist views of knowing, learning, and doing and their implications for the design and content of documentation for complex tasks. (SG)
