Using Video To Enhance Content and Delivery Skills in the Basic Oral Communication Course: Summarizing the Uses and Benefits.
Glenn, Robert J., III
The use of videotape technology is an effective pedagogical tool with which to improve the overall performance of students enrolled in sections of basic public speaking. These uses and benefits in the classroom include: (1) practice feedback; (2) identification of style inhibitors; (3) analysis of structural-content issues; (4) suggestions for improvement of speaking style; and (5) suggestions for improvement of presentational content and structure. Students are encouraged to conduct their own impression management assessment as they view a recording of their initial presentations, focusing on a variety of verbal and nonverbal cues which include eye contact, gestures, physical movement, among others. The videotaped records can assist students in overcoming communication apprehension and reinforce the lessons introduced through classroom lecture and discussion pertaining to speech structure and evidence usage. The use of videotape has greatly enhanced the quality of student presentations, improved the classroom climate, and helped produce positive educational outcomes in the areas of delivery style, structural development, and research.
