process of Making Sense for yourself?
Sense-Making is an approach to thinking about and implementing communication research and practice and the design of communication-based systems and activities... Since Sense-Making has been under development since 1972, it cannot be encapsulated in a few sentences or even the intersection of all the documents on this web site. It is important, however, for the reader to know that the project has been based on three central assumptions regarding communication practice: (a) That it is possible to design and implement communication systems and practices that are responsive to human needs; (b) That it is possible for humans to enlarge their communication repertoires to pursue this vision; (c) That achieving these outcomes requires the development of communication-based methodological approaches. - Brenda Dervin
