How Can I Avoid Communication “Misfires” with Students?

Learn communication techniques to help you navigate difficult situations with students—such as missed assignments, poor attendance, or late work—while keeping their motivation strong and their attitude about your class positive.

Positive behaviors that lead to increased student learning

The ways in which educators communicate with and treat students have a profound effect on their learning. Put another way, it's important that students like what their professors say and do. Studies have shown a causal link between students' positive attitudes toward courses and cognitive learning achievement.

Some teachers, however, sabotage this process. They may routinely, but inadvertently, communicate in disagreeable or antisocial ways that demotivate their students and work against learning.

Discover how to change the three teacher behaviors that college students dislike most in How Can I Avoid Communication “Misfires” with Students?, the 20-Minute Mentor video presentation from Magna Publications, available now for purchase.

Dr. Jennifer Waldeck, associate professor of communication studies at Chapman University, distills her extensive experience in this area into a tight, energetic presentation filled with ready-to-use strategies and illustrative examples.

You will learn communication techniques to help you navigate difficult situations with students—such as missed assignments, poor attendance, or late work—while keeping their motivation strong and their attitude about your class positive.

Dr. Waldeck will explain how educators can manage to be likeable and approachable without sacrificing rigor or integrity.

This presentation covers how educators should behave toward their students in both online and in-person interactions. You will get practical recommendations on dealing with technology so you can let students use their devices in class without impeding your teaching style or the classroom discussion.

Even the best teachers may engage in unintentional or unavoidable communication misbehaviors. This video will help you recognize and neutralize them. Cutting down on the number of missteps can have a positive impact on student learning—and on what students communicate about you in their evaluations. Buy your video today.
