Communication Education: Some Possible Futures.
Lieb-Brilhart, Barbara
This paper discusses communication education in the past, present, and future. Communication education is discussed in each time period in terms of who the learners are, who the teachers are, what concepts are being taught or emphasized, how the concepts are taught, and in what contexts the instruction occurs. These components are also considered against the motifs of education and society, i.e., the values, beliefs, and goals that dominate the social and political institutions and inter-relate with the educational systems of the time. It is concluded that in the future, the most profound impact on society and education will be the advent of the learning society, one in which the emphasis will be on practical experience with time off for working before, during, or after schooling. It is further concluded that the profession of speech communication will probably be a prominent force in the twenty-first century. (TS)
