Emphasis is placed on communication theories and techniques used in interpersonal, group, public, intercultural, and mass communication situations. Upon completion, students should be able to explain and illustrate theforms and purposes of human communication in a variety of contexts. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA and the ICAA as a general education course in Humanities/Fine Arts (Substitute) Why should I take this course? Communication is essential to human life and for effective functioning in all types of relationships, as well as a necessity for every career. People assume that because it's a natural part of human life, we all already contain expertise in how to best communicate. This is not the case and effective communication is a skill that needs consistent practice and maintenance in all personal and professional contexts. Communication is not just “talking.” We need to be able to communicate effectively through writing, speaking, and emotionally understanding others. Professionally, we need to be able to communicate well when job interviewing, asking for/getting a raise, creating an argument selling an idea, etc. Personally, we need to clearly express thoughts and feelings, listen with attentiveness and empathy, and present arguments logically and intelligently. Please be sure to take a look at the attached "Why Flyer" for more information on why this course is important. Objectives: Throughout this course students will learn a variety of topics in communication as it relates to human life and society. Therefore, upon completion of this course, students will be expected to:1. Explain the human communication process2. Recall the foundations of verbal language3. Identify the different elements of nonverbal communication4. Evaluate the role and importance of personal communication in one’s life5. Recognize the process and purposes of listening6. Identify the different types of interviews7. Apply the elements of a successful interview8. Analyze each role played by participants in a group9. Recall the different types of groups and their functions10. Demonstrate the steps involved in public speakingREQUIRED COURSE MATERIALSRequired Text: O'Hair, D., Wiemann, M., Mullin, D. I., and Teven, J. (2018). Real Communication: an introduction. (4th ed). Boston: MA: Bedford/St. Martin's***A note about "getting away without the textbook"*** As prior college students, we completely understand the desire to try to skate by without purchasing a textbook. Though doing so may work for you in a seated class, and though I may introduce a variety of other instructional materials from time to time, the textbook is absolutely vital for success in the online course. You are expected to take control of your own learning and to read the chapters in order to get the most out of this educational experience. Not to mention, many of the assignments or discussion boards ask you to appropriately cite information from the textbook in order to apply your knowledge to your personal experiences.Required Softwarem To access your online course you will need access to the Internet. If you ever have trouble with Blackboard or receive any error messages, the problem can usually be alleviated by switching web-browsers. Although there are no absoluterequirements, computers with faster Internet connections, faster processors, andmore memory will get better results. Other information for required software is below:***This online class will include more than simply reading chapters from the textbook and writing responses to the discussion board. In order to promote student engagementand involvement in the classroom, we will take part in some unique assignments and discussion activities that require some creative thinking, use of other websites, as well as access to audio and video capabilities.For instance, at certain points throughout the semester, you may be required to participate in some asynchronous discussion boards using an app called VoiceThread, and/or participate in Blackboard’s new feature, Collaborate. Detailed instructions will begiven at a later date. You will also be required to use PowerPoint with audio voice-over for certain assignments. If you are using the Microsoft Office cloud version of PowerPoint, this voice feature may not be available, so you’ll need to use a computer with Microsoft Office installed. Encouraged, but not required: With the purchase of your text, you also have access to thedigital tools that comes with this course on Launch Pad. This is a valuable tool for YOU to get the mostout of your textbook. At the least, I encourage you to partake in the chapter "learning curve quizzes" to prepare you for your tests. Go to http://www.macmillanhighered.com/launchpad/realcomm4e/8192867 to access the class site. Refer to the details in “course information” on your class blackboard shell for further information on setting thisup. Also required: A working Coastal Carolina Community College email account that youcheck regularly is vital for success in this course. Make sure to review the instructions on sending and receiving emails with your instructor and students. We send a lot of updates, announcements, emails, etc. so it is imperative that you check your email often.Email Policy: On the subject of a working email, please keep in mind that this is a college-level class. As such, we expect professional communication in the classroom as well as online. Notice that a greeting goes a long way and establishes positive relationship level
