Training the Butterflies to Fly in Formation: Cataloguing Student Fears about Public Speaking
LeFebvre, Luke; LeFebvre, Leah E.; Allen, Mike
Communication Education, v67 n3 p348-362 2018
This study catalogues student (N = 828) self-described fears related to public speaking. Specifically, this investigation adds to the knowledge of public speaking anxiety through an initial inductive analysis of students' fears about public speaking and a second analysis (of different data) to authenticate emergent categories. Resulting categories included both internal and external fears about public speaking, providing meaningful implications for teaching and learning within the introductory communication course.
