Mission

The Instructional and Developmental Communication Division’s mission focuses on the importance of creating conducive learning environments via the use of effective behaviors. Because instructional communication occurs in a variety of contexts, the division promotes the study of communication constructs, utilizing diverse methodologies, theories, and paradigms in the instructional process including, but limited to, teacher-student interaction, instructional technology, optimal methods of information dissemination, and information literacy, etc.

 

Description

The Instructional and Developmental Communication Division is committed to the study of communication related to any learning environment or instructional process.


Goals

The division seeks to promote the study of communication processes and/or advance theory in the instructional process (e.g., teacher-student interaction, instructional technology, optimal methods of information dissemination, literacy). Additionally, the division provides teacher-scholars an opportunity to submit and share their ideas for effective instruction through unique teaching practices/activities.

 

Research

Division members actively research topics ranging from information literacy, classroom participation, power and influence in instructional settings, and technology in education. Importantly, the members of our division believe that instruction can happen across a wide variety of contexts, including training and development sessions, online contexts, and educational health interventions, to name a few.


Influence

Our division is small, but we provide exciting opportunities to collaborate, network, enhance research, mentor, and engage in service on an international level to invigorate our members and enhance their everyday teaching practices.
