Two individuals met as instructor and student but became research partners after a course in the technical writing and communication (TWC) program. Alexander Champoux and Eric Wisz had the opportunity to collaborate on research about rhetorical theory and creative writing for the Creative Writing Studies Organization (CWSO) issue.
“Intercultural communication skills are increasingly important as technical writing becomes more global, and intercultural communication skills are often handled reductively or insufficiently in technical communication textbooks and course design,” says UMN instructor Kari Campeau. That’s why she actively includes diverse communities in her classroom.
A strong leader, a liberal arts advocate, and an educator, Karin Goettsch holds a PhD in rhetoric and scientific and technical communication from the University of Minnesota. She is a well-rounded individual that walks with purpose and takes advantage of all the opportunities that come running to her. Her diverse skill set has given her the opportunity to speak at national and international conferences, and she credits much of it to her liberal arts education.
Dr. Laura Pigozzi will be joining an initiative at The Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard (MRCT Center) tentatively entitled “Health Literacy Resources for Clinical Research".
