Now, those people who engage in doing both research in technology and in bringing technology into the classroom face the same problem. Because technology is "different" from the kind of work usually associated with English Studies, it is most often considered Service and, therefore, devalued. In addition, the product of technology is becoming ever more often electronic texts rather than print texts. As a result, those who engage in research using and about technology and who integrate it naturally into their teaching are simply viewed as "alien" in units who value printed text above all.
Through using the "Boyer Model," especially his category of the "Scholarship of Application," I will discuss how technorhetoricians can easily fit their work into Promotion and Tenure guidelines.
