COM 795 - Special Topics (1-3)

In many professional fields, communication and networking is probably the major factor in creating opportunities for job success and promotion. This course, designed for Deaf and Hard of Hearing professionals, will enable participants to analyze, identify, and recognize issues enabling them to become more aware of their communication and networking paradigm. This will enable them to better understand the challenges they face in the workplace and gives them an opportunity to develop goals and objectives in their work plan to address challenges and issues faced by them. Enrollees in this course will cover some aspects of communication theories and how these apply to where they work. Learning modules, examinations, reading assignments and group projects will be conducted online. Group projects will involve development of action plans for each individual through feedback among members of the group and can serve as a road map for their communication and managerial goals.

THE 795 - Special Topics (1-3)

Topics offered include visual-gestural communication for professionals working in deafness-related fields, uses of creative drama in deaf education, and introduction to sociodrama.
