Communication across the Curriculum and in the Disciplines: Speaking in Engineering.
Dannels, Deanna P.
Communication Education, v51 n3 p254-68 Jul 2002
Embraces a communication in the disciplines (CID) theoretical framework and explores meanings associated with speaking competently as an engineer. Indicates five important features of speaking in engineering: simplicity, persuasiveness, result-oriented, numerically rich and visually sophisticated - all of which invoke the skill of translation. Makes theoretical contributions that suggest orality as a site for disciplinary knowledge construction, disciplinary socialization, and negotiation of disciplinary tension. (SG)
