Identifying Communication Competencies for the Undergraduate Organizational Communication Series.
Staley, Constance C.; Shockley-Zalabak, Pamela S.
The undergraduate organizational communication series at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs has been designed to develop competency through knowledge, skills, sensitivity, and values. The four courses in the series--Introduction to Organizational Communication, Business and Professional Communication, Advanced Organizational Communication, and Communication Internship--permit appropriate repetition and reinforcement, and through cooperative efforts among faculty members, allow instructors to make specific decisions about the balance and type of learning experiences that will most benefit students. The decisions made about the knowledge to be presented and the skills to be developed are obvious attempts to influence the cognitive and psychomotor domains. Less obvious, but equally important, are the attempts to develop sensitivity and ethical perspectives to positively influence the affective domain. The series is based on the assumption that the educational influence in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains contributes to communication competency and to increased behaviorial choices--the application of learning--in the organizational setting.
