Lynchburg, Va. (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Liberty University Press recently released "Teaching Communication Creatively," which was written by Drs. Faith and William Mullen.
Students remember only 50 percent of what they see and hear, but 90 percent of what they do. Active learning is a critical approach to education, and “Teaching Communication Creatively” provides more than 30 lesson plans to help teachers tap into this concept.
Drs. Faith and William Mullen teach an array of graduate and undergraduate communication courses at Liberty University. They understand the difficulty of crafting an interactive learning experience in the classroom.
“In the years we have been teaching, we have worked hard to make our class material interesting, applicable, and relevant to our students,” Faith shared. “After making use of many of these ideas [from “Teaching Communication Creatively”] in our classes, we found that students enjoy class more and learn better when they become actively involved with the course material.”
About the Authors:
The Mullens collaborated with more than 20 communication professors across America to create “Teaching Communication Creatively,” a one-of-a-kind compilation of lesson plans and instructional tactics.
