Using Consulting Projects to Teach Critical Thinking Skills in Business Communication
There is more to successful communication than learning the styles and procedures often found in the traditional business communication syllabus. In this article, I discuss the benefits of using a critical-thinking approach to helping students to understand the complex social and political environment in which business communication is practiced. I explain how communication consulting projects can be used to examine the context of organizational communication. Finally, I discuss the implications for teaching business and technical communication using a real-world, critical approach.
