If I Had a Crystal Ball …
Abstract:When I look back over the past several years of special issues or special sections of Technical communication, I see a trend, starting with the special issue on “trends in our field” in February 2004 (certainly not the first issue on this topic!) and continuing through the special issue on “the future development of the profession” in August 2005. We want to know what the future holds.
Because the response to the call for proposals for the August 2005 special issue included a number of proposals about academic programs, George Hayhoe decided to devote another special issue to “future direction of academic programs and pedagogy.” Thus, you have the origins of this topic for this special section.
