More Than a Knack: "Techne"& Teaching Technical Communication.
Dubinsky, James M.
Technical Communication Quarterly, v11 n2 p129-45 Spr 2002
Argues for a more deliberate emphasis on teacher training by reinvigorating "techne" as a concept that is far more than instrumental or prescriptive. Suggests that if teacher educators prepare prospective teachers to master the "techne" of teaching, they encourage them to become user-centered, reflective practitioners who understand the critical need for situational uses of knowledge.
