Encouraging Students to Apply Their Skills Now: Making Difficult Requests

Encouraging Students to Apply Their Skills Now: Making Difficult Requests | Exclusive Teaching Resources for Business Communication Instructors | Scoop.it

Just as they will be on the job, most of the requests students need to make in their academic and personal lives are fairly routine and can be accomplished using the techniques for routine requests they learn in this course.

However, we all face situations from time to time where we need to make a more difficult request, such as asking an instructor for leniency, asking a landlord or a retailer for special consideration, or asking parents or a partner for help. In these situations, a more persuasive approach might be useful.

 

Encourage students to apply the strategies they are learning for persuasive business messages and to follow these tips as well.

Encouraging Students to Apply Their Skills Now: Five Tips for Better Listening – | Exclusive Teaching Resources for Business Communication Instructors | Scoop.it

Much of the business communication course focuses on improving one’s skills as a sender of messages, but successful communication requires the mindful and skillful participation of both the sender and the receiver.

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook?

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook? | Exclusive Teaching Resources for Business Communication Instructors | Scoop.it

 

Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?


Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:

 

Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.

 

In light of these facts, are your students being served well? There is one team that’s always on the cutting edge: Bovee and Thill. The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current. (Bovee and Thill were also the first authors to discuss social media and digital communication in their texts.)

 

Adopt the only modern "Essentials" text: Business Communications Essentials by Bovee and Thill.

Teach Your Students the Modern Slide Design That Many Presentation Specialists Now Advocate

The complaint of "death by PowerPoint" is often voiced by audiences forced to sit through screen after screen of overstuffed bullet-point slides.

But presentations don't need to be so dull. As students learn in Bovee and Thill texts, the most important design decision for a presentation is whether to use conventional structured slides or the looser, free-form slides that many presentation specialists now advocate. If the text you're currently using is teaching only conventional bullet-point slide design, it isn't preparing students for the expectations of today's workplace.
