Online Course Development & Delivery: Oral Communications
Author(s): (OTC), Online Teaching Conference
College: 3C Media Solutions
Bob Nash, Dean of Academic Affairs, California Virtual Campus-Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI) with Panel/Co-presenters:
Angela Prelip, Professor of Communication and Media, Folsom Lake College, Brandon Gainer, Faculty & Co-chair; Communication Studies / Faculty Coordinator (Online Education), De Anza College, Tammera Stokes Rice, Associate Professor & Chair of Communication Studies, College of the Canyons and Mary Anne Sunseri, Communication Studies Instructor, Foothill College | The lack of online public speaking courses has become a serious bottleneck for students who need or want to earn their degrees entirely online. During this panel discussion, attendees will learn how their faculty colleagues at other California colleges have designed, developed, and delivered oral communication courses fully online. Best practices will be offered and challenges will be noted, along with potential solutions (e.g., how students will present in an online format and how faculty/students can assess those presentations). I will moderate the discussion with three faculty panelists who are or recently have taught online oral communications courses, with special emphasis on public speaking.
