Ispeak: Public Speaking for Contemporary Life: 2011 Edition by Paul Nelson (North Dakota State Univ-Fargo)
Freedom of speech and public speaking are critical components of a healthy democracy. "iSpeak" promotes this declaration by using examples that reflect vital personal, social, and political themes that portray campus communities across the country. "iSpeak" consistently demonstrates that public communication is directly related to what people care about, what people want, and what people do.
New to iSpeak is Connect Public Speaking - a dynamic and powerful web-based learning management platform with the student experience at its core. Informed by extensive research conducted with both instructors and students, Connect is designed to help students earn better grades and save instructors valuable time, whether teaching a face to face, online, or hybrid course.
More current, more portable, more captivating, plus a rigorous and innovative research foundation adds up to: more learning. When you meet students where they are, you can take them where you want them to be.
