Dear Online Students:

Welcome to Communication 210

Zoom Day:  Friday

Zoom Time: 9:00AM-10:50AM

Description and Objectives: This is an introductory course in Group Communication designed to provide the opportunity for improvement in both theoretical understanding and practical performance of human communication in a group setting. This class satisfies the general education requirement in oral communication and is acceptable for UC and CSU transfer credit.

My objectives for this course are for you:

  1. To learn the basic principles of human communication.
  2. To become a more effective communicator. This involves an analysis of your communication situation, audience, occasion, and purpose; selection of subject matter; research, analysis, and organization of material; presentation of the message, and evaluation of the effectiveness of your communication.
  3. To become a more careful and critical thinker and communicator, both as a speaker and a listener.
  4. To understand your relationship and ethical responsibilities to others involved in the communication transaction.
  5. To understand the necessity of working in a variety of groups and how those groups develop, deal with conflict, leadership, participation and presentation.
