1. Dervin, Brenda. "Teaching students communicatively: 20 years of applying Dervin’s Sense-Making Methodology to audience reception, user studies, philosophy, methodology, and interviewing" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Marriott, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-08-17 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: This presentation will review how I have applied Sense-Making Methodology (SMM) over a 20 year period to both graduate student and undergraduate education. SMM has been applied as a “universal” approach that emphasizes how “non-expert” and “expert” worlds can interconnect outside the impositional constraints of noun-based hierarchical domain-oriented expertise. In SMM, this kind of communicative intersection is posited as essential to move education from mere transmission to more genuine communication in which the world views of both non-expert and expert, lived experience and expertise matter. Application contexts have involved some 80 classroom settings over a 20 year period with both undergraduate and graduate students.
