This page offers resources from various POD members that were collected in response to a query on the POD listserv:
"I need some resources on helping students specifically in the STEM disciplines to develop their oral communication skills. I am looking for examples of assignments, peer observation rubrics, rubrics for assessing presentation skills for program accreditation, techniques to use in the classroom, very nuts and bolts materials."
John Claus (Augustana College) suggests the AAC&U rubric on oral communication: http://www.aacu.org/value/rubrics/OralCommunication.cfm
David Jacque (Oxford) offers textbook suggestions:
S. Raj Chaudury (Auburn) suggests the ABET rubric at http://www.ce.udel.edu/ABET/Current%20Documentation/Outcome_12b.html.
Sharon Hilles (Cal Poly Pomona), a linguist, gave a talk that is summarized at http://www.csupomona.edu/~facultycenter/cpp3/FacultyCenter/weeklyTeachingNotes/weekly_teaching_note_may_17_2010.shtml, in which she suggests helping students practice a small number of key skills.
Many people offered their own rubrics or rubrics developed for their programs. All attachments are in the order listed.
