Set Gryffindors apart”

what is communication
What is “communication”?
  • Latin “communicare” - "to share, divide out; impart, inform; join, unite, participate in," lit. "to make common,“
  • A process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior
  • The act of communicating; transmission.
  • The exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.
  • Interpersonal rapport.
  • Communications (used with a sing. or pl. verb)
    • The art and technique of using words effectively to impart information or ideas.
    • The field of study concerned with the transmission of information by various means, such as print or broadcasting.
    • Any of various professions involved with the transmission of information, such as advertising, broadcasting, or journalism.
  • Something communicated; a message
aristotle s speaker centered model
Aristotle’s Speaker-Centered Model
  • Greek philosopher-teacher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.).
  • Aristotle’s definition of rhetoricis one of the earliest definitions of communication
  • “Rhetoric” is “the faculty of observing in any given case the available means of persuasion” (Rhetoric 1335b).
  • Aristotle attempted to work out a theory of communication and language.

aristotle s model of communication

Speaker

Message

Listener

Aristotle’s Model of Communication
  • Designed for public speaking/oration
  • Speaker at the center of the communication process
  • Speaker prepares a message for an intended audience
  • Message is intended to have an effect- influence the audience
  • Audience is seen to be passive and ready to be influenced by the speaker's message

In other words, according to Aristotle a speaker sends a message to an audience and the audience is affected by the message received.

progress and development
Progress and development
  • Little development in Communications theory during the intervening millenia
  • Rapid progress in 20th Century
    • espcially after World War II
laswell s model w ho says what to whom in what channel with what effect
Laswell’s Model“Who says what to whom in what channel with what effect”
  • Harold Dwight Lasswell
    • (1902-1978) American political scientist and communications theorist
  • World War II
    • Chief of the Experimental Division for the Study of War Time Communications at the Library of Congress.
    • Analysed Nazi propaganda films to identify mechanisms of persuasion used to secure the support of the German people for the war
laswell s 5 elements of propaganda
Laswell’s 5 Elements of Propaganda

Propaganda entailed five key elements

  • Lasswell assembled these elements into a model and then turned the model into a simple question:
    • “Who says what in which channel to whom with what effect?”

(declassified in 1948)

  • If you found the right answers to each of the five elements of the question, then you could create effective propaganda – unless, of course, too much “noise” – unplanned static or distortion during the communication process – resulted in the receiver receiving a different message than the sender sent.
bring the boys home
“...bring the boys home.”
  • For example, it was discovered that“Help win the war” wasn’t the most effective slogan to use for selling war bonds.
  • Appealed to men, but not women.
  • This led to the development of a more effective slogan: “Help win the war and bring the boys home.”

schramm s model of communication
Schramm’s Model of Communication
  • Wilburn Schramm proposed this model in 1955
  • Considered to be the best of all the theories since it is evolved and comprehensive

http://www.shkaminski.com/Classes/Handouts/Communication%20Models.htm#ClassicalCommunicationModels

schramm s model of communication31
Schramm’s Model of Communication
  • First stage – one way
    • Emphasis on encoding process and source like that of Aristotle without any recognition for noise.
    • It too was a one-way direction of communication flow.
  • Second stage – two way
    • Emphasis shifted to the shared domain of experience of sender and receiver.
    • The sender has to take into consideration, according to this theory, the needs and abilities of the receiver, which he must be aware of due to shared experience, and thus the selects the right channel and at the same time encodes the message in the way that can be understood by the receiver.
    • Here the communication process is understood to be a two-way flow.
  • Third stage - feedback
    • Feedback was thought to be an essential element of communication system. In this stage of Schramm's theory, the communication process encompasses sender, receiver, good channel, proper encoding, proper decoding, and feedback. The flow which ends with feedback starts immediately again to make a circular process.

website design aristotle s rhetorical principles part 1

Assignement

Website design – Aristotle’s “Rhetorical” principles (part 1)
  • Ethos - ethos, from which we get the word "ethical," has to do with reputation or character, in other words what other people think of us and whether they feel they can trust us.
    • In terms of digital design, ethos or credibility is extremely important for you to keep in mind because online trust determines whether people feel your site and its message are credible. Digital ethos can be constructed by a number of factors, such as visual appeal, organized navigation, and rich information content. Yet the ancient Greek word ethos also had another basic meaning, that of habitual gathering place, and in some regards, online ethos can also be seen as whether a designer has constructed a site to which people can return again and again, or whether the site creates a sense of online community through user interactions.
  • Logos - logos, from which we get the word "logical," concerns the logic and consistency of the message being communicated.
    • In other words, does the content of your site make sense and is it written in a consistent tone or style? Consistency also becomes important in terms of overall site structure. A poorly organized site with visually confusing pages can undermine the concept of logos, which in turn can reduce the site's overall ethos. For Aristotle, all points of the rhetorical triangle were interrelated.
  • Pathos - pathos, from which we get the words "pathetic" and "empathy," deals with the emotions, specifically those of the audience. In classical rhetorical theory, playing on an audience's emotions was seen as a primary vehicle of persuasion, but in more modern times, pathos has come to mean any rhetorical act that addresses audience expectations or information needs.
    • In this regard, it is extremely important that you understand and analyze the audiences for your Web site, anticipating their informational and navigational needs at every click of your site. That is why Jakob Nielsen and his colleague stress using concise, scannable text in all Web documents -- because that's the way most Web users read.

website design aristotle s rhetorical principles part 2

Assignement

Website design – Aristotle’s “Rhetorical” principles (part 2)
  • In your first assignment for this class, due September 9th, you'll be asked to compose a rhetorical analysis of an organizational Web site. In this analysis, you should examine all three points of the rhetorical triangle and how well the designers have addressed these three elements in their site design. In other words, you'll be discussing how the designers constructed ethos, logos, and pathos.
  • Audience Analysis
  • Identification and analysis of your Web site's audience is perhaps the most crucial step you can take in the early stages of your design process. Factors to examine in any audience analysis include:
    • Context in which the site is being read
    • User attitudes and motivations
    • Education and reading levels
    • Professional experience
    • Organizational role.
  • For general Internet use, your audience may be so broad as to defy description, but in most situations, you can gain a very detailed sense of who your audience members are and what their informational needs are.
  • In professional digital design firms, audience analysis and user testing are primary components of the design process and are conducted for many weeks before the first line of code is ever written. Why? Such testing helps designers fashion both content and structure of the site in order to reduce the need for changes once the site is being constructed. Such user testing includes everything from focus group interviews to unsability studies in which people navigate through prototype sections of a site and report problems they experience. As part of your Web site proposal due March 28th, I expect you to include a fairly extensive analysis of who your audience is for your proposed site.

communication the organisation
Communication & the Organisation

Understanding communication process is critical to management of the organization. Managers should understand that communication is rarely understood as it should be. The distortion of the message can happen at any of the stages in communication process-sender, receiver, encoding, decoding, channel, message and feedback.

what makes a good communicator in other words
What makes a good communicator?In other words...
  • An active listener
  • An effective presenter
  • A quick thinker
  • A win-win negotiator

We will be examining each of these areas in detail over the coming weeks

active listening49
Active Listening
  • Understand your own communication style
  • Listen With Purpose
  • Use non-verbal communication
  • Give feedback

(in detail below)

active listening 1 understand your own communication style
Active Listening1) Understand your owncommunication style
  • High level of self-awareness to creating good & long lasting impression on others.
  • Understand how others perceive you
  • Avoid being a “chamelon” by changing with every personality you meet
  • Make others comfortable by selecting appropriate behavior that suits your personality while listening. (Ideally, nodding your head).
active listening 2 listen with purpose
Active Listening2)Listen With Purpose
  • People speak100-175 words per minute but can listen intelligently at 300 WPM
  • One part of human mind pays attention, so it is easy to go into mind drift
  • Listen with a purpose
  • Purpose can be to:
    • gain information
    • obtain directions
    • understand others
    • solve problems
    • share interest
    • see how another person feels
    • show support
    • etc.
  • If it is difficult to concentrate, repeat the speaker’s words in your mind
active listening 3 use non verbal communication
Active Listening3) Use Non-verbal Communication
  • Eye contact
  • Smile
  • Gestures
  • Your posture
  • Cultural cues

(More on this momentarily...)

active listening 4 give feedback
Active Listening4) Give Feedback
  • Remember... what someone says and what we hear can be vastly different
  • Repeat back or summarize to ensure that you understand
  • Restate what you think you heard and ask:
    • "Have I understood you correctly?"

non verbal communication 3 gestures
Non-verbal communication3) Gestures
  • Head nods, a form of gestures, communicate positive reinforcement to students and indicate that you are listening.
  • A lively and animated communication style captures peoples' attention, makes the material more interesting, facilitates understanding and provides a bit of entertainment.
  • If you fail to gesture while speaking, you may be perceived as boring, stiff and unanimated.
non verbal communication 4 posture and body orientation
Non-verbal communication4) Posture and Body Orientation
  • You communicate numerous messages by the way you walk, talk, stand and sit.
  • Standing erect, but not rigid, and leaning slightly forward communicates to your audience that you are approachable, receptive and friendly.
  • Speaking with your back turned or looking at the floor or ceiling should be avoided; it communicates disinterest to your audience
non verbal communication 5 proximty
Non-verbal communication5) Proximty
  • Cultural norms dictate a comfortable distance for interaction with audience
  • You should look for signals of discomfort caused by invading your audience‘s space
  • Some of these are:
    • rocking
    • leg swinging
    • tapping
    • gaze aversion
    • sitting back
    • clasping hands behind head
non verbal communication 6 paralinguistic
Non-verbal communication6) Paralinguistic
  • Vocal elements, such as:
    • Tone
    • Pitch
    • Rhythm
    • Timbre
    • Loudness
    • Inflection
finally some body facts
Finally... some body Facts
  • You have over 630 muscles in your body.
  • It takes the interaction of 72 different muscles to produce human speech.
  • The strongest muscle in your body is your tongue.
    • use it effectively
  • Eye muscles are the busiest muscles in the body.
    • Scientists estimate they move more than 100,000 times a day.
  • You have over 30 muscles in your face to help you smile or frown.
    • 17 muscles to smile
    • 43 muscles frown
    • So... smile everytime you see someone – it’s easier!
