Upside down/side up: problematizing teacher communication behaviors and learning outcomes in communication
Department or Administrative Unit
Could teacher communication behaviors generally assumed to be positive ever be detrimental to students’ realization of particular outcomes? In this essay, we argue for increased scholarly attention to this question. We advocate a research agenda that explores the potential “downside”of teacher communication behaviors (TCBs); problematizing established TCBs in light of the National Communication Association’s Learning Outcomes in Communication (LOC).
