Technical Communicators make the complex comprehendible. When it comes to creating training and instruction materials, addressing the learner’s ability to grasp advanced concepts is critical for instructional designers. A recent longitudinal study of students in reading and writing mathematical arguments suggests that input from Arts & Humanities professionals positively impacted performance.

This research can benefit practitioners in the field developing all forms of instruction. If you have a “How To” anywhere in your sphere then this chat is for you. In this episode of Room 42, we discuss how expanding the sphere of collaboration between STEAM professionals improves training and instruction materials and boosts comprehension of complex material.


Kylie M. Jacobsen is an Assistant Professor of Writing at Grand Valley State University. Her research focuses on user experience research methods in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Humanities, and Mathematics (STEAM) environments, specifically analyzing the emotional journey of learning.
