Employers have consistently ranked communication skills as
one of the most desirable traits in new employees. In this LAP, students will
learn the importance of effective communication skills as well as techniques
for overcoming barriers to communication. Students will discover how
communication plays a role in their everyday lives, and how their ability to
communicate can help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about effective communication, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.
