Guidelines for Communication-Intensive Courses (CICs)
These guidelines were approved by the curriculum committees
of the WSAS, ZSB and SPA in 2007.
- A central objective of a CIC is the improvement of students’ written and/or oral communication skills.
- The course’s syllabus will include substantial written and/or oral assignments as an integral part of the course’s curriculum.
- Writing assignments and/or oral presentations will be guided by the appropriate learning goals for communication skills as well as by the learning goals of the course.
- The instructor and/or consultants will provide substantial feedback
on the students’ written and/or oral work, and the students will have opportunities, as appropriate to the course design, to revise written
work based on that feedback.
