Changing Business Communication Texts? Use the Fast and Easy QuickSwitch Textbook Migration System

QuickSwitch makes it easy to identify the best Bovée & Thill textbook for your business communication course and then quickly build your syllabus and lesson plans with our exclusive system.


The system works in three stages:


  1. Selection Advice and Transition Guides: The three books in the Bovée & Thill series cover a wider range of course needs than any other business communication series, so you may find that more than one Bovée & Thill title is a potential replacement for your current text. We offer advice to help you choose the right book for your unique needs. After you’ve decided which book to use, the Transition Guide provides detailed information to help you move to your chosen book, including high-level mapping that shows how the table of contents of your current text maps to the Bovée & Thill book, detailed content mapping that shows where to find comparable content sections from your current book in the Bovée & Thill book, a terminology translator that explains any differences in how the two books use important terms, and activity mapping that shows where to find comparable assignments and other student projects. The guide also highlights new material and new activities available in your Bovée & Thill book that your current book doesn’t have.
  2. Syllabus Assistant: This interactive tool helps you generate a syllabus that makes the best use of your new Bovée & Thill title, including course outcomes, detailed assessment rubrics, and the framework for a course calendar. You can easily pull in content from your existing syllabus and add required material from your institution. After you’ve completed the online interview, the system generates a Word document that you can then customize and finalize as needed.
  3. Lesson Plan Assistant: Choose from a list of important topics that you’d like to cover, such as communicating with diverse audiences or writing routine and positive messages. These documents provide the background information to build a successful lesson, keyed to content in your new Bovée & Thill text, which you can then adapt to your teaching interests and the specific parameters of your course schedule.
