This is an example of a RSS feed I subscribe to in order to keep up with trends in marketing. Although I teach in the area of communication, I find that there are many aspects of marketing that can be applied to an individual’s brand. As part of my Public Speaking for Professionals course, learners undertake mock job search assignment where they have to locate a position they are qualified for and submit a cover letter and resume for that position. then they  conduct a mock interview with another student to role play an selection interview.

Ready Made Content

via Course: COMM101: Public Speaking.

This example of ready made content would be a way to build a way for students to navigate through  the normal topics of a public speaking course. The basics of making successful speeches are not that difficult to understand. the important part in developing presentation competence is the guided practice that occurs when learners listen to their peer’s speeches and present their own.

This course could fit with my notions of pedagogy because i is clear and straightforward and moves through the important aspects a basic speech course. I like that it covers motivation and communication apprehension easy in the course and then hits listening before it starts with constructing speeches. Listening is often the vital communication skills that is never considered. But without an understanding of the listening process it is difficult to become an accomplished speaker.
