Communication Apprehension and Learning Styles.
Bourhis, John; Stubbs, Jay
A study examined the relationship between communication apprehension and the six learning styles of the Grasha-Riechmann Student Learning Styles Scale (GRSLSS). Data were gathered from 325 undergraduates enrolled in an introductory course in interpersonal communication who completed J. McCroskey's Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24), and the GRSLSS. Results indicated that low, moderate, and high communication apprehensive students differ in their preferences for learning styles, and communication apprehension correlates moderately but significantly with four of the six GRSLSS learning styles. (Two tables of data are included; 36 references are attached.) (Author/PRA)
