Educational Objectives for "Interpersonal Communication" for the Community College.
Bormann, Nancy C.
This paper explains the educational objectives of an interpersonal communication course at a community college in a Minneapolis suburb. It first describes the nature of the college and its student population, on the basis that good interpersonal communication courses should be tailored to meet the needs of the students. The paper then shows how the course attempts to help students analyze their own communication patterns and change habits they decide may be limiting their success. It describes some of the class activities used, notes that the course emphasizes that communication is a transactional process, and points out course limitations with regard to some students. (GW)
