Description

This free Online Types of Communication course starts with the world of visual culture. In a world where we communicate increasingly with images, it’s an ever-expanding field, comprising not just art, photography, and design, but also memes, advertising, histories of representation, and the very technologies through which all this flows. Next we will focus on visual perception. Perception involves, first the sensations, which are then within the brain process to process compared with existing knowledge memory and images of earlier human beings.

Next we will talk about the relevance of sound. It is important because it informs us and moves us in ways visuals can't. Music is something which is pervasive within our culture of context. Nonverbal communication  is anything besides words, such as gestures, actions, facial expressions, body language and other aspects of your physical appearance, that, when seen, communicate something.

Finally we will cover basic topics like facial expressions. facial expressions are a form of nonverbal communication, how to build relationships, group dynamics which deals with the attitudes and behavioural pattern of a group, types of group dynamics; command, task and functional groups, groups, conflicts and their resolution, social network, media and extending our identity.
