The innovative ways provided by Research Communications Studio (RCS) to connect communication skills with engineering research are discussed. The RCS addresses the development of communications abilities in a system of distributed cognition. The pre- and post-survey showed evidence that RCS students' perceptions of their communication and metacognition skills increased. The RCS bases its pedagogical approach on Dorothy Winsor's concept of thought and knowledge as a network distributed among members of a group with shared goals.
