In this interactive webinar, Christy Ashby will discuss the current trends and historical conflicts in research concerning typing to communicate. She will present key issues in the research community and ways that we can move from research that seeks only to test validity and authorship toward research that helps us understand how to support people to become more effective and independent communicators. We will explore common research questions, methodologies, and ways to discuss research and respond to challenges.
