Developing a Certificate Program in Interpersonal Communication at West Valley College. Curriculum Development.
Seiquist, John A.
This paper discusses a practicum that developed a pilot program in interpersonal communication, creating a pattern of courses that would instruct students in the use of listening/talking skills for dyadic and small group situations. The paper shows how the need for this program was established and assessed and how a multidisciplinary committee developed the program, which included four core courses in speech, psychology, and counseling and two sets of course options, one in speech and one in management. The program is humanistic, competency based, and designed to provide students with both cognitive and affective learning experiences. Documents that were used in the practicum or that were developed by the committee are appended. (RL)
