This course assesses the degree to which students have succeeded in achieving the goals of the lower-division communications skills program. By reviewing and synthesizing the topics and skills covered in the previous four courses, by providing continued practice in all the communications skills, and by introducing the different communication practices of various disciplines and careers, CO230 emphasizes the integrated nature of the communications skills program and the importance of communications for a successful life and career. This course explores further the importance and practice of adapting communications to the expectations of various audiences and emphasizes the completion of standardized assessments in the various communications skills, the establishing of bridges between Communications Skills I-V and communications-intensive courses in the various disciplines, and the conceptual integration of the communications issues and skills taught in all five courses. Students are to maintain and present a portfolio of written materials and videotaped oral presentations from CO120-221 for assessment in CO230. This course requires competency in presentation software. Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for students to enroll in upper-division communications skills courses.
