Basic Course Director Regional Workshop
Hosted by the University of South Dakota and South Dakota State University
Department of Communication Studies
September 25-27, 2014

About the Conference
The Basic Course Director’s Regional Workshop addresses the need for developing quality administration of the basic course in communication departments across the country.  This workshop is designed to help fill the “training gap” by developing skills for those faculty responsible for this important course in areas such as course design; assessment; supervising adjuncts; training instructors; campus and community advocacy; and other issues often encountered when directing the basic course. 

This workshop is designed so that Basic Course Directors (or others in a Director, Coordinator, Supervisor, or other similar basic course role) will spend the first day and one-half working on administrative, curriculum, assessment, and training related issues.  Basic Course Directors are encouraged to bring one or two instructors to join them halfway through the second day, and the latter half of the workshop will involve training instructors while training Basic Course Directors to lead training.

Registration Information
The registration fee includes all meals, snacks, beverages, the meeting space, supplies, and all conference sessions.  For Basic Course Directors, the conference will begin with breakfast and a formal welcome by department chairs at 8am on Thursday, September 25th and will end before dinner at 5pm on Saturday, September 27th. The cost of registration for Basic Course Directors is $300, and the cost of registration for Basic Course Instructors is $200.

Please see the Announcement below for further details about the workshop and for the registration form.
