The Basic Course: Informing Communication Pedagogy through Teacher Training and Program Assessment
Simonds, Cheri J.
Journal of Communication Pedagogy, v1 n1 p12-15 2018
In serving as a training ground for future communication educators, the basic course is uniquely placed to explore issues of communication pedagogy. Communication pedagogy is a domain of study that informs communication teachers of the best practices in teaching communication competencies. As a basic course director in the Department of Communication at Illinois State University, the role of the author is to provide communication teachers with the tools they need to effectively teach the introductory communication course. To be effective in this role, it is important to research methods of teacher training and program assessment. In this article, the author will provide two examples of how her basic course scholarship has informed communication pedagogy in both teacher training and program assessment.
