Using a variety of research methods, communication scholars, sociologists, psychologists, and anthropologists have reached a similar conclusion about humankind: we are social creatures. We need to establish meaningful relationships with others. We need to associate with others in groups. We are reared in family groups. We are educated in groups. We worship in groups. We are entertained in groups. We work in groups. When an important problem arises, we seek others' advice and meet with problem-solving and decision-making groups in order to help find answers to important issues.
The main purpose of this course is to help you become a better communicator in the context of a small group. The objective is to give you both a broad understanding of group communication processes and practical advice to help you become a more effective small group participant. The course will primarily deal with task-oriented small groups – groups with a specific objective to achieve, information to share, a problem to solve, or a decision to make.
