Introduction
The teaching and learning of highly required workplace technical communication skills (i.e.
writing reports; calling for meetings, preparing meeting agendas and taking, writing and
editing minutes; writing and sending formal email messages and letters; etc.) out of their
relevant contextual settings does not guarantee full student involvement in the learning
process and may be futile (Mercer 2006; Yu 2008; Chun 2010). Contextualizing the teaching
of these skills opens students' eyes to their appropriate uses in authentic communication
