Learning occurs when students understand class content and perceive they are understood by classmates and instructor. Understanding is achieved as a result of interpersonal communication that occurs in the classroom, between students and instructors. The purpose of this learning circle is to examine and practice interpersonal communication competencies that will contribute to understanding in the classroom.

Discipline-specific communication researcher Denise Vrchota, Assistant Professor, English, will share common foundations and unique communication strategies that enhance the interpersonal communication in your classes. Topics covered include field-specific communication, listening competencies for academic and professional success, giving and receiving effective feedback, methods of conflict management, and recognizing essential nonverbal communication. Participants will engage in individual consulting with the leader to apply interpersonal competencies to the classes consistent with their disciplinary traditions.
