About the Course

This course is about communication on various levels. Over these 9 weeks we will cover a number of theories, cases and applications in the field of communication science. We will start with the foundational concepts of communication theory, defining what the theory is and going through a number of approaches to communication itself. Each week you will have a test to check on your progress and understanding. We also have a final text in the end of the course and a little bit of writing. As Oscar Wilde said, if you cannot write, you cannot think. If you cannot think, others will do thinking for you. So we find writing and reflecting pretty important for our classes. Along the course we provide you with in-class materials: lecture presentations, articles and additional readings. If you really want to get into the topic, don’t avoid this extra work. Although a substantial part of this course is theory-based, communication theory has a very practical application. Communication is an underlying process which creates and develops relationships, communities, societies. We communicative on a daily basis via a variety of means and channels. In our globalised and increasingly interconnected world, communication skills are essential in both the personal and professional spheres. It is our goal to leave you with a contextualisation and conceptualisation of communicative processes that will poise you to hone your own communicative skills — in other words, to put theory into practice.

Interesting information. However, the presentations are not always clear and, more importantly, I asked one simple question in the discussion board 2 months ago, and none of the operators answered. There seems to be no guidance at all during the course, which I think is a pity.

However, I think the shown theories are interesting.

Very Solid course to understand the background of our behavior and decisions making as well as what information we get and why.

It is a wonderful course. It bridges the gap between information and communication theory and practice. The theories are really useful as it provides lens to view various information and communication issues. I would recommend this course to everyone.
