6.3 Chapter Summary

While theories of communication and theories of learning have evolved over the years, and the nature of the connection between them has shifted, it is useful for us as educators to keep in mind that instruction, whether in a face-to-face classroom, an online classroom, or even a self-service e-learning application, is an act of communication.  An understanding of the communication process therefore underlies all we do as educators.
