This highly interactive face-to-face course emphasizes learning through doing. Working individually or in small groups, students are involved in focused practise, analysis and interpretation of interpersonal communication.

Students are likely to conduct research with human participants as part of course requirements and evaluation. Instructors are responsible for making sure that such research is conducted in a manner consistent with College research ethics policies and federal policies. Audio and video tape recordings are used for the purpose of informed self-assessment and evaluation.
