- Listening is the least emphasized mode of communication. As such, it deserves a more thorough treatment. Upon scanning the OER landscape to determine existing opportunities to learn about listening, it was discovered most are devoted to the practical skills of listening. However, much can be learned by learning about the theories and research of listening.Therefore, this module is intended to serve as either a stand-alone learning module on listening or a more advanced module that can be added to other more practically-oriented modules. This module introduces students to academic study of listening and treats listening as a thriving sub-discipline (of interpersonal communications) that can be explored from an academic perspective.It provides sufficient references and resources that can be examined more thoroughly and perhaps even built out into an entire course or mini-course on listening.Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:DEFINE listening using theoretical developments. (Bloom 1)CLASSIFY effective listening practices by affective, behavioral, or cognitive processes. (Bloom 2)USE theoretically-based listening practices to improve communication. (Bloom 3)DEVISE a personal listening strategy based upon theory. (Bloom 4)This module has eight sections: Overview, Engage, Explore, Explain, Evaluate, Elaborate, Express, and Extend.
