A forum for users of any of my texts but really for anyone interested in interpersonal communication, the fundamentals of human communication, and public speaking.
I have taught online for about 3 years now and enjoy it immensely. I really agree with the comment about the syllabus needing to be more comprehensive. My syllabus for Interpersonal Communication has grown to 40 pages. I now call it the course handbook. I even have a FAQ in the back. I am adding a separate handbook on academic writing. I cover this in my face-to-face classes, but haven't in the online ones. In today's educational environment many students graduate high school having never written a term paper and are at a total loss as to how to approach such a project. Oh, and just to be sure they read my mega-syllabus, they have to pass a quiz on it as part of the work.Terri
