Communication Courses for Business Students: Instructional Design and Curriculum Development for a Disciplinary Sequence in Communication Studies.
The communication sequence that is being developed to form part of the business degree program at Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education in Australia is described in this paper. In addition, the paper examines eight factors influencing curriculum decisions concerning the development of the disciplinary sequence. The eight factors reviewed are the influence of: (1) established criteria for a disciplinary sequence, (2) particular competency requirements as compulsory preparatory studies, (3) the specialist versus generalist debate, (4) staffing profiles, (5) student profiles and adult learning theory, (6) social science theorizing, (7) the "new discipline" and its frontiers, and (8) other resource needs.
