Forum: Interpersonal Communication in Instructional Settings. The Interplay between Interpersonal Communication and Instructional Communication
Punyanunt-Carter, Narissra Maria; Arias, V. Santiago
Communication Education, v66 n1 p118-120 2017
In this brief forum article, the authors suggest that in order to truly understand communication education, both interpersonal and instructional variables must be analyzed. Instructors, researchers, and scholars need to find balance between content and relationship aspects while being aware of context boundaries to truly assist in maximizing learning outcomes. Scholarship must not undermine the study of interpersonal communication or vice versa; communication in classrooms encompasses interpersonal communication factors tethered to the specific instructional contextual boundaries, and knowing in what situations technological innovations enhance the teacher-student relationship is the new challenge. "Communication Education" scholars, readers, and teachers should incorporate the best practices of interpersonal and instructional communication in order to make learning more effective and possibly affective.
