Jane Torpie shared some personal experiences and opinions that are
relevant to us in our complete role as technical communicators. In
particular, I appreciated the following excerpts:

I hope our professional organizations (Society for Technical Communication,
IEEE's Professional Communication Society, or ACM's SIG-DOC) are promoting
oral communication as a valuable skill to develop and use.

I was delighted to read in previous postings from college-level instructors
of writing programs that they incorporate student presentation experiences
in the classroom.
