The Basic Communication Course

The Communication Blog

I wrote this little piece to respond to some concerns voiced on the Basic Course List and I thought it might be relevant more generally. Now may be the time to reconsider and reconceptualize the basic course. Traditionally, the basic course in communication has been a course designed to teach the skills of public speaking. Then in the early 70’s courses in interpersonal communication were developed, again to teach basic skills.

The Live Audience in Online Public Speaking Courses: One More Try

The Communication Blog

After reading the varied posts, I’m convinced we (as an academic discipline) don’t have any evidence for the claims that a live audience is either effective or necessary in online public speaking courses. This may well be true (though I’m not sure) but perhaps an online public speaking course is not the place for it. Perhaps the online public speaking course should be focused on online public speaking—webinars, podcasts, videos on YouTube.

And the fall finale didn’t disappoint. More than the intrigue (hello Nickolas Pearson – OMG!), did you watch how Randall’s “sales” presentation went from boring to awesome? When he began, his presentation performance was dismal despite being fully prepared. He talked too much about things that didn’t matter to his “buyers.”.
