Johnson, Scott D.; Miller, Ann N.
Communication Education, v51 n3 p280-92 Jul 2002
Presents a cross-cultural study of immediacy, with samples of students drawn from a university in the U.S. and a university in Kenya. Identifies positive relationships between verbal immediacy, nonverbal immediacy, credibility, and cognitive learning for both samples, further supporting research done in the U.S. and elsewhere suggesting that higher immediacy teachers are perceived as being more effective and credible.
