​Communication in the Major:
Oral Communication Workshops

The new GEP includes a Communication in the Major requirement that is embedded in each major on campus. Instructors offering Communication in the Major courses are required to complete a training, which has two components: Written Communication and Oral Communication.

This page provides additional information about Oral Communication.

Facilitated by Cade Spaulding (Division of Communication), each Oral Communication workshop is approximately 2 hours long and will address the following learning outcomes:

As a result of completing the Oral Communication workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Identify basic skills and understandings students have about content, structure, and delivery after taking Communication 101
  • Recognize common oral communication obstacles and how to avoid them
  • Develop alternative oral communication activities to the “student presentation” default for current course offerings
  • Create customized assessment rubrics based on established AAC&U’s VALUE rubrics
