Abstract:In this article, we share the story of the formation of an interdisciplinary alliance and explain its potential for demonstrating how such efforts can play a small part in preparing the field of technical communication for some of the greater challenges we will face in the coming years. We begin with background on the two disciplines involved in this particular project. Next, we explain why this project came to be and how it has progressed. We conclude with a framework for understanding our interdisciplinary exchange—what its outcomes are and how they are relevant to academic programs and the field in general.
