Modeling and Facilitating in the Communication Training and Development Classroom.
Farley-Lucas, Bonnie
This paper focuses on integrating "educational" and "training" approaches in the Communication Training and Development classroom. The paper discusses distinctions between the two approaches and the implications for instructors of the course. It offers 10 concrete suggestions for navigating between communication "education" and communication "training" approaches. According to the paper, "education" includes topics such as: adult learning theories, the scope and field of communication training and development, societal issues impacting training and development, organizational dynamics and politics, qualitative and quantitative approaches to needs assessment and evaluation, ethical issues in training and development, training modes, and training resources and technologies; in the"train-the-trainer" mode the instructor is required to provide/reinforce training in: interpersonal communication skills, presentation foundations, conducting needs assessment, techniques for measuring training and development outcomes, administering instruments, responding to trainees, and so on.
