The Contemporary Relevance of Communication Research: Using "Communication Currents" in the Communication Curriculum
Waldeck, Jennifer H.
Communication Teacher, v22 n4 p97-106 Oct 2008
The purpose of this report is to describe a rationale and strategies for use of the National Communication Association's online magazine, "Communication Currents", in the undergraduate communication curriculum. "Communication Currents" features essays that translate current scholarship published in NCA journals, making the research "understandable and usable for broad audiences, including communication experts working with lay audiences, instructors and students, the press, and other interested members of the public" ("Communication Currents", 2007, p. 1). This report explores the use of the "Communication Currents" website results in discussions that provide students an enhanced understanding of their degree and its centrality to society.
