This master’s seminar was offered in an asynchronistic format, guided by a schedule of readings, online weekly engagements, collaborate projects, and deep-dives into case studies, which involved in-person visits to various organizations from the students enrolled in the course. The course assignments maximized practical application for the business marketplace. As with many master’s seminars, the enrollment was limited to fewer than ten highly-engaged, intelligent, and ambitious students, all of whom demonstrated significant growth.
The book includes student commentary, discourse, inquiry, exploration, reflection, and deliberation. This rich content was collected and curated from an engagement software called Packback (visit Packback.co/questions to learn more). Content in this book is derived from Packback’s online curiosity stream, which is a platform where students and professors ask questions, post responses, and engage in course-related dialogue. The platform elevated student discourse, generated new revelations pertaining to the course topics, and showcased the next generation’s intellectual curiosity regarding group leadership in various contexts. Readers of this book will be edified, inspired, and motivated to explore the many applications of communication studies.
