Seneca Tech Comm professors achieve leadership recognition

Two Seneca professors have received professional acknowledgement from the Society for Technical Communication (STC). Beth Agnew has been named an Associate Fellow, and Bernard Aschwanden has been elected Vice President of the Society; he will move into the role of STC President next year.

These honours represent endorsement by their peers of their skills and leadership in the profession of technical communication, a discipline where practitioners make technology easier to use and understand.

Beth Agnew, one of the first to achieve the Certified Professional Technical Communicator designation, has been the manager of the STC’s Marketing Communications Special Interest Group and is a popular speaker at society events and industry conferences. She is the coordinator of the Seneca Technical Communication program.

Bernard Aschwanden is a certified Adobe expert and trainer, and specializes in single-sourced content, which he teaches in the Technical Communication program. He is an Associate Fellow, has been president of the Toronto Chapter of the STC, and served recently as a Director of the society.

Both professors will be acknowledged at an honours banquet at the STC International Summit in Phoenix, AZ in May.
