Helping Students Adapt Their Writing Skills to Wiki Collaboration with the Bovee and Thill Wiki

Helping Students Adapt Their Writing Skills to Wiki Collaboration with the Bovee and Thill Wiki | Teaching a Modern Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Bovee and Thill offer innovative ideas and resources for teaching business communication, so instructors can spend less time preparing and more time teaching.
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

The widespread adoption of wikis in both business and higher education is a testament to the collaborative value of wiki technology. However, wiki collaboration does require a broader set of skills than traditional business communication requires. It also requires a different approach to communication, one in which the authorial “me” is superseded by the collaborative “us.”Evaluating, editing, and revising the work of other writers.


Before getting your students started on wiki projects, it’s a good idea to offer some coaching in evaluating, editing, and revising the work of other writers. These tips are helpful in a variety of communication situations, of course, but they’re essential for wiki collaboration.


Before making substantive changes to an article, students should consider the following questions:  . . .


Note: You can give your students the opportunity to develop wiki skills in a secure, confidential environment. The unique Bovée/Thill wiki simulator lets students practice evaluating and revising wiki articles using a real, live wiki editor.


Unlike a conventional wiki, however, this system saves each student’s work separately and privately so that you can evaluate his or her ability to assess an article with numerous built-in flaws and make the corrections needed to improve readability and achieve the “you” attitude.

Business Communication Textbooks: The Secret of Finding the Ideal Fit for Your Course

As the only business communication series with three distinct textbooks, the Bovée-Thill series offers you more choices for a better fit with your unique needs. No matter which Bovée and Thill title you choose, you can count on three enduring advantages.

First, this series has been leading the market with one innovation after another for more than three decades. Bovée & Thill have consistently led the way with every major revolution in business communication, starting with the shift from print to digital, followed by the growth of social media, the rise of mobile communication, and now the emergence of artificial intelligence and intelligent technology.

The digital transformation sweeping through business is creating a host of new communication tools and techniques that students will encounter during their job searches and in the workplace. Much of the new coverage in this text has necessarily focused on technology, but Bovée & Thill take the wide view of how employer expectations and contemporary practices continue to evolve. This also embraces developments ranging from ethics and etiquette to the shift toward a more casual tone in workplace writing.

Second, even as they evolve to align with changing business practices, Bovée and Thill texts maintain a solid foundation of communication skills. This approach starts with an efficient writing method that helps students build confidence while producing better writing in less time. The method is applied to every major type of business message and illustrated with numerous model documents that show students the specific writing choices that make messages effective or ineffective. These core writing skills are expanded with practical advice on communication topics that today’s employers view as critical, including collaboration, ethics and etiquette, diversity and inclusion, and the productive use of technology.

Third, Bovée & Thill textbooks are backed by an unmatched selection of resources for instructors and students, many of which were pioneered by the authors and remain unique in the field. All these resources are free to instructors and students, and many are available exclusively to Bovée & Thill adopters.

Avoiding Ethical Lapses in Business Communication

Avoiding Ethical Lapses in Business Communication | Teaching a Modern Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

Ethical communication includes all the information an audience needs to make an informed decision or take an informed stance on an issue and is not deceptive in any way. Whenever you communicate in business, you ask audiences to trust that you will provide information that is complete and true.

 

If you intentionally violate that trust, you have engaged in unethical communication. Unethical communication can take several forms: withholding information, distorting information, and plagiarizing. Note that some of these choices can also be illegal in certain circumstances.
