The Effects of Communication Technologies

The goal of this presentation is to have you take a specific topic related to organizational communication and learn more of what we know about this topic through targeted library research.

Your first task for this assignment is to choose a group and specific topic option for the research exercise. Listed below are topic options you can choose from. These topics have been specifically selected because they are at the right level of specificity for this research exercise.

My chosen topic is:The Effects of Communication Technologies

Your assignment for this exercise is to find four articles from research journals that have extended our knowledge of your topic area. These articles should have been published during the last 5 years, should be directly relevant to the topic area, and should not be cited in the textbook. Feel free to use Internet search engines to help you find these articles. However, the articles themselves should be from academic journals.

For each article you choose, you should be prepared to present a discussion of the article that includes (1) a brief summary of what was concluded in the article, and (2) a discussion of the relevance of this article for your topic area that includes consideration of how our knowledge is extended by the research under consideration.

In addition to the discussion EACH STUDENT will turn in the following:

  • A cover page that includes your name and discussion section and the topic area you’re considering for the research exercise.
  • The content of the four articles you selected.
  • A 1-2 page discussion of each article as discussed above. You should have a paper for each article regardless of whether you present that article in class.
