Pacing

The Business Communication Skills for Managers textbook contains fifteen modules—one module per week for a sixteen-week semester (with an additional week for review). If you need to modify the pace and cover the material more quickly, the following modules work well together:

  • Module 1: Communicating in Business and Module 2: Writing in Business
  • Module 7: Public Speaking and Module 8: Developing and Delivering Business Presentations 
  • Module 11: Communicating Different Messages and Module 12: Collaboration In And Across Teams 
  • Module 14: Finding a Job and Module 15: Recruiting and Selecting New Employees 

Module 6: Reports and Module 10: Social Media can also be combined with other modules as necessary.

We recommend NOT doubling up the following modules, because they have more material to cover. Students will need more time for mastery and completion of assignments.

  • Module 4: Research
  • Module 5: Visual Media
