A Learning Center Approach to Basic Communication Courses.
Ellingsworth, Huber W.; And Others
This booklet describes how to set up a multisection college-level course in basic communication skills, built around the concept of "learning activities" conducted within a "learning center." The ideas presented are based on four years of experience in operating such a course at the University of Hawaii. The first section of the booklet discusses key concepts that have been operationally defined for the learning center at Hawaii; it considers the selection of specific communication skills to be emphasized and the development of learning activities; and it examines details of operation and desirable course outcomes. The second section describes objectives, procedures, and evaluation methods for 16 learning activities designed for use in a communication learning center. The activities teach a wide range of communication skills, including those skills involved in seeking and giving information, working cooperatively with others, writing clear instructions, and making oral presentations.
