LMC 4813: Communication Theory, Pedagogy, and Practice
Georgia Tech alumni repeatedly cite the importance of communication skills in their professional and personal lives. Addressing this need, in this course you will study the ways in which people communicate, learn to communicate and strategies to help others improve their communicative abilities. You will achieve these purposes through several means:
- the study of those theories and research methods that have informed what we currently know about how writing and communication works on the page, on the screen and during in-person interaction;
- the investigation of your own writing and learning strategies;
- the observation of one-to-one instruction in the Naugle Communication Center; and
- the completion of a group research project intended to improve practice or deepen our understanding of communication at Georgia Tech.
Students who successfully complete this course will be eligible to apply for paid employment as peer consultants in the Communication Center.
Responsibilities include greeting everyone who enters the Center, managing appointments, answering telephone and e-mail queries, and directing visitors to the appropriate people.
