Dr. Helen Grady

Mercer's technical communication faculty are active in publishing and presenting in the field.

   


Faculty Research and Consulting

In addition to sharing knowledge with students through MSTCO courses, MSTCO faculty also contribute to the sharing of knowledge in the technical communication field through research and consulting as evidenced by their published works, conference presentations, invitations to speak/ host workshops, project consultations, and awards.

Not only do these experiences increase faculty members' credibility within the profession, but they also allow faculty to supplement classroom teachings with first-hand knowledge, making lessons more interesting and relevant to students' interests.

The following resources provide you with a variety of materials that reflect the various research and consulting interests of the MSTCO faculty.
