Do You "See" What I "See"?
The Role of Immediacy in Enhancing Student Learning and Overall Educational Experience

One of the most critical ways for improving student learning is ensuring high quality relationships between students and their instructors. In particular, the way we as instructors communicate in and out of the classroom has a major impact on students' cognitive and affective learning, and their willingness to communicate with us. Taking a critical look at some of the ways we relate to our students is essential to enhancing their educational experience.

The workshop will...

(1) Review research findings that emphasize the role of instructor communication on student learning;

(2) Identify verbal and nonverbal immediacy communication behaviors that promote and demote classroom learning;

(3) Analyze videotaped samples of instructor behaviors in the classroom;

(4) Develop a plan to maintain and enhance immediacy communication behaviors in the Xavier instructional setting.
