Looking across the Divide: Analyzing Cross-Disciplinary Approaches for Teaching Business Communication
Laster, Nicole M.; Russ, Travis L.
Business Communication Quarterly, v73 n3 p248-264 Sep 2010
This study elucidates pedagogical differences and similarities between the ways in which instructors from business and communication disciplines teach the introductory business communication course. During the spring of 2008, the authors surveyed 444 instructors teaching this course at colleges and universities across the United States. Their findings highlight several cross-disciplinary commonalities and disparities. The article discusses potential implications for the complementary and contradictory instructional approaches and call for more cross-disciplinary uniformity in contemporary business communication education.
