About Our Division
Instructional and Developmental Communication is concerned with both communication related to any learning environment and communication which transpires across the life span.
The division has the dual goals of promoting the study of communication variables and theory in the instructional process (such as teacher-student interaction, instructional technology, optimal methods of information dissemination) and to promote the study of communication as a developmental phenomenon across the complete life span.
Division members actively research everything from the influence of television upon children and the development of communication in childhood, relational predictors of elderly life-satisfaction, and grandparent-grandchildren relationships to service learning, classroom participation, power and influence in instructional settings, and technology in education.
Importantly, the members of our division believes that instruction can happen across a wide variety of contexts. Instruction can be provided during training and development sessions, in online contexts, and during educational health interventions, to name a few.
Our division is small, but we provide exciting opportunities to collaborate, network, enhance research, be mentored, engage in service on an international level, and improve and rejuvenate everyday teaching practices.
