Teaching Ethics In Introductory Public Speaking: Review And Proposal, Jon A. Hess

Jonathan A. Hess

Ethics are not heavily emphasized in either public speaking textbooks or classroom lectures. This de-emphasis of public speaking ethics is unfortunate. Educators should take responsibility for making sure that students are familiar with ethical issues and that they know that unethical public communication is not acceptable. Since public speaking textbooks do not provide much explicit guidance for ethical decision making, supplementary material is provided in this article. Four ethical principles are provided to help students understand the nature of communication ethics, a sample class lecture is outlined, and teaching ideas are included.

Rethinking Our Approach To The Basic Course: Making Ethics The Foundation Of Introduction To Public Speaking, Jon. A. Hess

Jonathan A. Hess

The basic public speaking course is often taught from a standpoint of effectiveness. That approach can be problematic due to the dangers of technique. The use of ethics as a foundation for public speaking can overcome this drawback and has other advantages. Included in these advantages are its fidelity to the subject matter, promoting more responsible use of power, improved fit with the liberal arts mission of higher education, and better meeting student needs.

Issues in implementing an ethics-based course are discussed, such as identifying ethical issues and engaging in dialogue. The model is illustrated through a description of one ...

Basic Public Speaking Principles: An Examination Of Twelve Popular Texts, Jon A. Hess, Judy C. Pearson

The importance of the basic course is reflected in the number of published articles focused on it. Aside from having an annually published journal (The Basic Communication Course Annual) devoted to it, articles concerning the basic course are sprinkled throughout many of the discipline's journals. However, Schneider (1991) pointed out that few studies have focused on the textbooks used. Since the textbook is generally the foundation upon which the course is built, it is an important object of study.

Although the term basic course may be used to identify a variety of courses (such as public speaking, interpersonal communication ...

Will Power: Learning What It Takes To Build A Radio Show (Not A Podcast) At Will-Am, Benjamin Payne

Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication: Student Scholarship & Creative Works

What does it take to build a public radio show from the ground up? That was the question I asked throughout my Multimedia Journalism & Mass Communication (MJMC) Senior Inquiry. But I didn't just conduct research to find an answer—I served a professional internship to find an answer. Over the summer of 2016, I interned with "The 21st", a statewide public radio talk show produced by WILL-AM of Illinois Public Media in Urbana, Illinois. As the show had only been on the air for three months by the time I began my internship, I was in a unique position to learn what it takes to build a public radio show from the ground up: a voice that distinguishes the program editorially and aesthetically; an audience that contributes to—as much as it listens to—the program, from whatever devices they so choose; and a team that collaborates creatively and congenially day after day, no matter how cramped the newsroom may be.
