Abstract

Recent discussions about making the field of organizational communication more influential have given inadequate attention to how our pedagogical frameworks could more explicitly promote the distinct contributions of organizational communication scholarship. Embracing the classroom as an overlooked yet tremendously meaningful site for demonstrating the value of organizational communication theory and practice, we offer a guiding framework for teaching organizational communication that more clearly attends to the salient qualities of a communicative approach to the study of organization. We argue that this overarching approach to organizational communication pedagogy will help develop greater practical wisdom among students as they learn to apply communicative perspectives for understanding, critiquing, and engaging the problems of contemporary organizational life.
