Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Human Communication is an integrated program that helps students practice skills developed from theory and research, build confidence in public speaking, and succeed in the introductory course. Reflecting the latest scholarship and with an eye to everyday communication scenarios, Human Communication is designed to make introductory communication studies immediate and relevant to students.

New lead authors Titsworth and Hosek want students to be ready to 
• Communicate effectively in novel and uncertain situations 
• Assess their audience and establish common ground 
• Listen effectively and respond appropriately 
• Practice the skills appropriate to a variety of relationships and cultures 
• Adapt their communication using current technologies 
• Speak with confidence and clarity on important topics

There is a new focus throughout the text on how communication can help individuals relate in an increasingly polarized world.
