Proposal Title

"Ya Talkin' to Me?" A Presentation of Skills Workshop to Increase Productive Listening

Proposal Abstract

Only 2% of our student population has ever received formal listening instruction at any grade level. Pedagogy seems to focus on delivering information. This presentation will address an approach to listening that makes it possible to identify the known barriers to listening and it will present listening as a teachable, developmental learning skill. The techniques for listening are based on solid research and will empower instructors to deliver information using methods shown to result in optimum listening efficacy. Instruction will also address the separate, but ever-increasing, permanent hearing damage that has resulted from our high-decibel culture.
