Faculty Can Adjust Communication Environments to Improve Interaction with Students: The Theories That Drive the Environment.
Higher education faculty can be more effective by recognizing what causes immediacy and approach-avoidance behavior in their surroundings, what nonverbal signals they are sending, and how to control their environment, thereby enhancing their interaction with students. This paper examines immediacy theory, approach-avoidance theory, color theory, light theory, and the Asian art of placement, viewing how they explain behavior, especially in college and university environments.
