Communication in Educational Environments introduces students to the importance of interpersonal communication and social skills in contemporary education and care settings characterised by diversity. Students develop an understanding of the links between effective verbal and non-verbal communication skills, cultural sensitivity and teacher efficacy; and explain the importance of using these strategies to engage with culturally diverse groups including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners and their families. Both analytical and practical knowledge of interpersonal skills and constructive communication strategies that establish collaborative relationships with learners, parents and carers and colleagues to support learning and engagement and maximise educational opportunities for all students are emphasised in this unit.
