Non-Verbal & Visual Communications
by Cork Education and Training Board
This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.
This course aims to provide the learner with the knowledge, skills and capacity to communicate effectively in a variety of everyday situations including verbal and non verbal communication, writing, listening and interview skills.
This course is appropriate for a wide range of age levels and is suited to both K-12 and Higher Education. It can be used to introduce younger students to new skills or for adult learners who may be returning to education.
The course focuses on three different sections. Students start off by exploring signs, then interpreting sounds before finally creating their own visual communications.
|1||Non Verbal and Visual Communications||This course teaches students how to interpret and communicate through  visuals. Using diagrams, photos and   videos students will learn that messages can easily be communicated and understood without the need of speech whilst at the same time learning the difficulties that can be faced when there is no sound. ||--||Free||View in iTunes|
