Teacher Immediacy: What Students Consider To Be Effective Teacher Behaviors.
Crump, Charla A.
A study investigated the impact of teachers' use of immediacy behaviors in the college classroom. Behavior patterns of teachers often affect the behavior patterns of students. Teacher immediacy has been found to positively impact student cognitive, affective, and behavioral learning. Subjects, 70 students, enrolled in a communication course in a community college located in the southwestern region of the United States, volunteered to complete a questionnaire during class. Results indicated that 12 teacher immediacy behaviors were considered to be effective and important to the college students, with humor ranked as the most effective and physical touch as the least effective. (Contains 45 references and 2 tables of data. The questionnaire is attached.) (Author/RS)
