A number of universities have set quantitative requirements for writing or communication intensive programs. Instructors whose courses have been chosen for a communication intensive designation have been compelled to add specific numbers of word or pages of writing. When such assignments are merely added to existing syllabi, the assignments may not further course objectives or foster better learning. The materials in this section are intended to help faculty think about new ways that communication instruction can be integrated with their courses. Several sample syllabi are included. In addition to resources related to course design and assignment design, there are also materials to help train discussion leaders and student writing mentors or presentation coaches.

  • A Syllabus Design to Defeat the“Content Squeeze”
  • A“Drilling Down”Communication-Intensive Syllabus
  • Collaboration and Learning: Managing Groups
  • Creating and Using Interactive Lectures
  • Ethics Module: Stem Cell Debate
  • Reinforcing Lectures with Discussion Groups in a Large Lecture Class (Syllabus Options)
  • Using Discussion Boards and Wikis
