​Communication in the Major:
Oral Communication Training

The 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.

Created and managed by Cade Spaulding (Division of Communication), the Oral Communication training is now available in an online self-paved module.  This module is located on D2L and addresses the following learning outcomes:

As a result of completing the Oral Communication training module, 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
