Transcript of Communication and Scholarship
CMS1000 Semester 2, 2016
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.
– 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.

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.
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.
Can you think of types of communication ?

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.
