Language, History, Politics, and Culture in Global Communication Through the Bologna Process Documentation
Computers and Composition Volume 38, Number 1, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Students preparing to enter today's global workplaces need to understand factors that can affect writing and communication practices in international environments. Writing instructors, in turn, need to provide students with educational experiences that can best prepare them for such contexts. For these reasons, writing instructors should consider introducing students to contemporary events or initiatives that can affect international interactions across different genres and media. The Bologna Process, a multi-state effort to reform the higher education in 47 countries, is one such initiative. By integrating aspects of the Bologna Process into the teaching of writing, instructors can work with students to rhetorically analyze writing practices in international contexts, as well as introduce students to the forces affecting them in international environments that affect global workforces.
