Using Research To Justify Instruction in the Basic Communication Course.
Moyer, Barbara S.; Hugenberg, Lawrence W.
This paper summarizes the research being completed in communication and business regarding the communication skills identified as important for college graduates beginning their careers. Perhaps even more important than research on instructional strategies and student learning styles, this research points the direction for needed instruction in the basic communication course. The research points to the importance of different skills needed for different situations--primarily in the group and interpersonal situations. It is concluded that the hybrid communication course is perhaps the most useful and practical course for undergraduate students. (Contains 12 references; a planning/competency model is attached.)
