Thompson, Kathy; Leintz, Pamela; Nevers, Barbara; Witkowski, Susan
Journal of General Education, v53 n3-4 p225-246 2004
Effective listening is fundamental to learning, yet it is seldom taught in a systematic, comprehensive way. The Integrative Listening Model provides a unique and practical framework to address this teaching/learning process. It stresses contextual and personal filters, as well as self assessment and goal-setting, to promote ongoing listening development. In this article, the authors provide a comprehensive definition of effective listening and a unique framework for teaching and learning listening across the curriculum. That framework, the Integrative Listening Model (ILM), reflects their belief that developing listening competence requires a systematic, developmental approach; opportunities for listening practice in varied contexts and for different purposes; multiple opportunities for self assessment and feedback; and goal-setting.
