Adventure-Based Learning across Domains.
With "adventure-based" learning, instructors present activities in a way that allows the group to develop its own abilities, with guidance from the instructor when appropriate. Adventure-based learning activities (which emphasize the importance of play) lend themselves to inclusion in the basic speech communication course, particularly when teaching concepts associated with public speaking and interpersonal communication. A "hog call" exercise acts as a vehicle to allow students to get to know one another better. The "It Ain't Me Babe" exercise is a non-verbal way for students to get to know one another. In the "Warp Speed" exercise, students work together toward a common goal. The "Mine Field" exercise is an effective activity to demonstrate the importance of listening. (RS)
