Development of Training Manuals for Interviewing and Public Speaking at St. Louis Community College, Meramec.
Grupas, Angela
This paper discusses the development of training manuals for interviewing and public speaking, topics covered in the Oral Communication course at St. Louis Community College at Meramec (Missouri). There are four major research questions posed: (1) what literature yields regarding the competency-based module, and its use in developing learning modules for the topics of interviewing and public speaking; (2) what specific subject information should be included in training manuals; (3) how full and part-time faculty can more accurately utilize the oral communications handbook; and (4) how the modules will be validated. Procedures used to complete the development of these training manuals included conducting a review of competency-based education literature, a reevaluation of the original modules in the Oral Communication handbook, development of a formative committee consisting of three full-time and three part-time faculty to assess content for supplementary modules, written study guides and practice cycles based on preliminary research, evaluation of supplementary module drafts related to practical application of material by another formative committee, completed study guides and practice cycles for all oral communication instructors; and finally, an evaluation of the modules by a team consisting of the department chair, assistant chair, and two full-time and two part-time faculty members.
