Speech Communication Education: A Broadened Perspective.
Nyquist, Jody L.; Booth, James L.
The traditional educational role of speech communication is too narrow to encompass recent contributions to speech communication and the increasing recognition that communication is central to the teaching/learning process. This paper first redefines speech communication education as the study of the process of speech communication in instructional settings and the development of speech communication competencies in prospective and practicing teachers. The paper then explores two goals of speech communication education (to generate productive theories and to encourage the development of effective speech communication competencies and the improved use of speech communication in instructional settings), identifies specific directions for implementation, and offers suggestions for research possibilities, curricular offerings, and service functions which could be the basis for continued development.
