The Instructional Communication interest group is concerned with research and its applications related to Instructional Communication and Communication Education. Instructional communication is the study of the role communication plays in the teaching and learning process in traditional classroom settings, corporate training settings, mediated settings, and other applied contexts. Research in this area typically has examined teacher/trainer and/or student/learner communication variables or modes of instruction to better understand their influence on teaching and learning. Unlike instructional communication, communication education is focused solely on the teaching of communication concepts. Research in this area, such as that related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, focuses on the ways in which communication concepts can be taught most effectively. Together these two areas of study complement each other and provide a rich contribution of scholarship to the Eastern Communication Association.
