What's New in Teaching Business Communication? Two Approaches to a New Business Communication Textbook Topic. -- Expert Speaker: Courtland Bovee

The textbooks that Bovee and Thill write lead the field in their coverage of visual media, and for the first in any business communication text, they've included a section on infographics.

Infographics are a special class of diagrams that can convey both data as well as concepts or ideas. In addition, they contain enough visual and textual information to function as independent, standalone documents. They've become a staple of online communication in recent years and are becoming important business communication tools in such areas of process design, training, and even résumés.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of infographics, those that are stylized collections of charts or graphs, and those that have a structured narrative. The first types don't necessarily convey any more information than basic charts and graphs in a conventional report would, but their communication value lies in their ability to catch the audience's attention and the ease with which they can be distributed online.

The second type go beyond this to take full advantage of the visual medium to tell stories or show interconnected processes. These infographics can be powerful communication tools, even to the point of replacing conventional reports.

In Business Communication Today, students can also learn about the tools for preparing infographics.

You can make it possible for your students to learn about data visualization and infographics only by adopting a Bovee and Thill business communication textbook.
