Abstract

The role of ethos in the communication process as discussed by Michael Hyde in The Ethos of Rhetoric suggests we reexamine the role of space in the Communication Center. Such a space should be created to facilitate and nurture the speech-composing and practicing process through feedback from individuals or groups while also allowing students to move from public to private places. Our chapter will address this use of space by utilizing research conducted in the groundbreaking Noel Studio for Academic Creativity. Our research uses control and experimental groups from communication classes to investigate the relationship between space and oral communication
