International Listening Association Webinar Series
Advancing Listening Research: A Sourcebook of Instruments to Measure Listening

Webinar Content: The webinar centers on the current state of listening research, exploring common problems that researchers face, as well as key issues that should be addressed when conducting research in the field of listening.

Following the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • situate current listening research practices within their respective historical contexts
  • distinguish between the three broad approaches to measuring listening
  • identify several emerging areas of listening measurement and methodology


Graham Bodie is a scholar, an educator, and a consultant. In each of these roles, he attempts to bring attention to one fundamentally important yet undervalued skill, listening.

Dr. Bodie is an internationally recognized expert on listening and has published over 80 monographs, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries. His most recent project, The Sourcebook of Listening Research (Wiley-Blackwell), is a comprehensive resource that reviews and critiques current and potential approaches to measuring listening. Dr. Bodie's work has been funded by the National Science Foundation (EPSCoR) and featured in the Wall Street Journal, Psychology Today, and on National Public Radio. In addition to several research awards, he was honored twice with Professor of the Year by students in the Department of Communication Studies at Louisiana State University, where he also was recognized with university-wide teaching awards. When he consults, he prefers projects that allow him to make a difference.

Dr. Bodie received his B.A. and M.A. in Communication from Auburn University and his Ph.D. from Purdue University. In addition to LSU, he also served as a visiting scholar in the School of Media and Communication at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea.

Debra Worthington has been conducting listening research for over a decade, particularly in the area of measurement and assessment. She is lead author of Listening: Processes, Functions, and Competency and co-editor of The Sourcebook of Listening Research: Methodology and Measures. She has numerous research awards, including the Ralph G. Nichols Listening Award, from organizations such as the European Communication Research and Education Association, the International Listening Association, and multiple divisions of the National Communication Association, the Eastern Communication Association, and the Southern Communication Association. She is a past president of the International Listening Association and was recently inducted into the ILA Hall of Fame.
