Anvari, Roya; Atiyaye, Dauda Mohammed
International Education Studies, v7 n9 p112-121 2014
This study aims to investigate the relationship between effective communication and transferring information. In the present correlational study, a cross-sectional research design was employed, and data were collected using a questionnaire-based survey. 46 students were chosen based on random sampling and questionnaires were distributed among respondents in four faculties located in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Bahru. To analyze the descriptive statistics of the data, the Pearson coefficient was conducted. The findings of this study illustrated that communication dimensions including proxemics, paralinguistics, chronemics and kinesics have a moderate positive correlation with transferring information. It is concluded that training programs can increase the awareness of the students about the aspects of effective communication.
