Zsuzsanna Palmer primarily teaches courses in professional writing, business communication, and document design. Because she believes that intercultural communication skills are crucial in our globally networked world, she frequently involves her students in online projects where they collaborate with students in various countries to create documents and digital interfaces.
Her research interests include intercultural communication, online writing pedagogy, visual rhetoric, website accessibility, and translingual writing. Her articles have been published in the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, the Journal of Business and Technical Communication, and in The International Journal of the Image. She has also contributed chapters to edited collections about translingual pedagogy and about citizenship and advocacy in technical communication. Currently, she is finalizing a co-authored article on the legal and ethical implications of website accessibility.
