Forum: Learning Outcomes in Communication. Setting an Agenda for Stakeholder Research to Field Test the NCA Learning Outcomes in Communication
Weintraub, Sara C.; Curnalia, Rebecca M. L.; Manning, Jimmie; Reitzel, Armeda C.; Chastain, Melissa
Communication Education, v65 n4 p483-485 2016
The Learning Outcomes in Communication (LOC) grant project isolated and refined what communication majors should "know" and be able to "do." The LOC project was an opportunity to begin a conversation in the discipline about the breadth of personal and professional competencies taught in programs. The resulting LOCs are "not exhaustive or prescriptive" but rather a starting point for ongoing reflection and research on and within our programs (Kidd, 2015, p. 6). Thus, in this brief forum article, the authors suggest ongoing stakeholder research to explore, refine, and update the LOCs.
