Speech Communication Internship Programs: A Review of the Literature.
Hellweg, Susan A.; Falcione, Raymond L.
This paper examines the literature about speech communication internship programs to determine how much is known about such programs, what approaches are used and/or advocated, and how they are perceived by those who participate in them and those who administer them. The paper reviews the literature within four categories: (1) reports of survey data about the pervasiveness of such programs; (2) accounts of student, faculty, and administrator perspectives of internship programs; (3) case studies of successful programs; and (4) prescriptive essays/commentaries on how communication internship programs could or should be operated. On the basis of this review, the paper gives recommendations for future inquiry and pragmatic development, and presents a Practice-to-Theory-to-Practice systems model for incorporation into these programs. A figure of the model and another figure are included; 26 references are attached. (SR)
