Shaping Project Management Concepts for Technical Communication Students

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

How does the technical communication curriculum prepare students for an increasingly "projectized" workplace? Theories of knowledge management, communities of practice, and project management practices are key concepts that our students need to be able to both understand and work within a "projectized" environment. So how can we as teachers go beyond the outcome of understanding concepts and help our students shape their own practice as project team participants and future project managers? We will present our experiences teaching and developing curriculum for project management in the Technical Communication undergraduate program at the University of Minnesota.
