From the authors of The Speaker and The Speakers Primer comes an innovative new textbook that covers hybrid communication course curriculum in an approachable way. Communication Pathways introduces to the market a handbook-style approach to the hybrid course, with concise chapters that emphasize communication theory. The authors chose to organize content around a communication-centric theme: dialogue. The first section of the text dedicates an entire chapter to the subject, unpacking the concept for students; the authors further incorporate and explicate dialogic communication as it applies to subsequent chapter concepts. This theme is unique to the text and is a central element of what the authors aim to accomplish: create competent, dialogic communicators who know how to advocate ideas civilly, explain complicated subjects, and disagree without being disagreeable in a variety of interactive settings.
