CT 3000 - Listening for Personal and Professional Success

Listening is the most widely used communication skill, and listening effectively is critical to academic, personal, and professional success. In fact, listening is consistently one of the top 3 skills employers seek in hiring new employees. Yet, most students never have any formal listening instruction in their lives. This course will have two primary emphases. The first emphasis is on understanding the interdisciplinary research that supports the listening process. The second emphasis is in acquiring and demonstrating the skills and strategies to be an effective listener from the cognitive and behavioral perspectives. When applying the skills and strategies successfully, students will increase their listening effectiveness as well as their long term memory.

Prerequisite: The Core Oral Proficiency Requirement.
