An Application of Robert Gagne's Nine Events of Instruction to the Teaching of Website Localization
Zhu, Pinfan; St. Amant, Kirk
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v40 n3 p337-362 2010
Website localization is an important part of international technical communication. However, at present, few technical communication programs offer courses in localization. This article provides an overview of a course devised to familiarize students with ideas and approaches related to website localization. The course was based upon Robert Gagne's nine events of instruction--an approach that allowed students to move from the learning of abstract ideas to the application of knowledge to the website localization process.
