Goal 4: Communication

Posted by on July 23, 2012 in 4 – Communication | 0 comments

Students should demonstrate competence in writing and in oral and interpersonal communication skills. Students completing foundation-level courses should write a cogent scientific argument, present information using a scientific approach, engage in discussion of psychological concepts, explain the ideas of others, and express their own ideas with clarity. Students completing a baccalaureate degree should produce a research study or other psychological project, explain scientific results, and present information to a professional audience. They should also develop flexible interpersonal approaches that optimize information exchange and relationship development

4.1 Demonstrate effective writing for different purposes

4.2 Exhibit effective presentation skills for different purposes

4.3 Interact effectively with others

Assignments and projects from any course are appropriate for this goal. Presentations given to a class or at event such as the SHU Petersheim Academic Exposition  (http://www.shu.edu/academics/artsci/petersheim/) are excellent projects to demonstrate your presentation skills.
