Communicating in Teams
CS212M5-5: Identify effective strategies for promoting professionalism in teams.
PC-3.1: Conduct oneself to reflect the professional characteristics and culture of a given work setting.
The assessment includes two parts. You will analyze professional communication in a team scenario and create a 2- to 3-minute audio response and written script. Keep in mind the concepts of effective communication in teams as you review the scenario and prepare your audio response and script.
What is a script, and how do I write one?
Professional audio recordings require attention to aspects of verbal communication such as vocal tone, variety, pitch, articulation, etc. To create a professional recording, first write a script. You then will have the content to read and can focus on professional delivery.
- Review the scenario.
- Start with an introduction.
