Communication and Scholarship
CMS1000 Semester 2, 2017
Workshop Focus
Realize the importance of getting to know
What is required for Communication to take place?

Broad theories of communication
Researchers’ current understanding of the process of communication is grounded in the various theories of communication which have developed during the last two centuries. These theories can be classified broadly as:

 (or one-way) view – a view of communication which is built on the premise that meaning is contained within the message alone. Page 118 of TEXTBOOK Kossen, C, Kiernan, E & Lawrence, J 2013, Communicating for success, Pearson Education, Frenchs Forest, NSW.

 interactive view
 – a view which asserts that meaning rests in relationships between people rather than the message Page 121 TEXTBOOK Kossen, C, Kiernan, E & Lawrence, J 2013, Communicating for success, Pearson Education, Frenchs Forest, NSW.

 transactional view –
 a view which considers that meaning is constantly negotiated by the interacting parties. Page 124 TEXTBOOK Kossen, C, Kiernan, E & Lawrence, J 2013, Communicating for success, Pearson Education, Frenchs Forest, NSW.

Kossen, C., Kiernan, E & Lawrence, J 2013, Communicating for Success, Pearson Education, Frenchs Forest, NSW.

Any task or transaction that requires more than one person can only be successfully completed with communication. In this lesson, you'll learn what communication is, types of communication and the importance of communication.

The importance of communication cannot be overstated. Our ability to communicate with one another effectively is one of the primary reasons civilization can exist. We can't effectively work together towards a common task or goal if we can't communicate. We can't preserve and spread knowledge without a way to communicate it.

Communication Defined

It's nearly impossible to go through a day without the use of communication. Communication is sending and receiving information between two or more people. The person sending the message is referred to as the sender, while the person receiving the information is called the receiver. The information conveyed can include facts, ideas, concepts, opinions, beliefs, attitudes, instructions and even emotions.

What type of communication interests you ?
Which areas are you working on to be successful at university?

Primary methods
Verbal Communication
Written Communication
Body Language
Examples of verbal communications include face-to-face talking, listening to a lecture or seminar, and listening to a television program

Written communication is sending a message by the use of symbols that are understood by both the sender and receiver of the message

For example, a flushed face may mean embarrassment; a clinched fist may indicate anger; and the rolling of one's eyes may signal disbelief or annoyance.

Assignment 2 Essay and Plan: Topic Questions
Part B: The Essay

Write a 1500 word essay on one of the following topics. This is a communication course so it is important that your discussion of the topic is written from a communication perspective.

Tips for your essay plan and essay

For this planning assignment you will need to think about the topic. You will need to decide what your viewpoint on this topic is. In other words, do you agree, disagree, or perhaps think there are two sides to the question. What you think about the topic, will be your thesis statement.

Use the modules to become familiar with the topic, but avoid using them in the essay.

· Use 5 different sources.
· Avoid using web pages.
· Use academically credible sources.
· Try EBSCO host for journal articles.

Before submission, give your assignment the correct file name

You must give your assignment a file name that includes:
· Your name
· The number of the essay question you’re writing on i.e. Topic 1, 2 or 3

For example: smith j _assignment 1_q3.docx

5. Once you’ve completed the topic sentences and supporting points, number them in the paragraph order you will be using in the essay.
