Component 3a: Communicating with Students




Course reviews will be shown here


Welcome to Communicating with Students! How effective we are as teachers has a great deal to do with how we communicate. We communicate ideas, information and expectations in a variety of ways – through speaking, through gestures and other body language, and through the written word.

The level of communication with students is important because:

  • Communicating effectively can help instructors have a “presence” in the classroom that motivates students and facilitates learning;
  • We may send unintentional messages if we are unaware of things such as our body
  • language; and
  • New technologies present new opportunities for communicating with students.


As a result of this module, learners will increase their capacity to:

  • Use nonverbal cues to promote a positive classroom environment;
  • Communicate effectively using a variety of modes to differentiate instruction; and
  • Reflect upon their own classroom practices and brainstorm individual strengths and weaknesses


This module, which should take approximately 30 minutes to complete, consists of the following activities:
