Course Description .
Today with the advancement in technology from digital media to mobile phones, personal computers with the internet, we are more connected than people from previous generations. These technologies may have revolutionised the way we work and play but they certainly have not improved our communication. In fact, miscommunication abounds and mutual understanding seems to elude us. The heart of the matter is that communication and dialogue is part of human interactions and no amount of technology can replace what is human. Communication is more often felt by our emotions than it is an intellectual enterprise. Wining through dialogue is more than just body language. It seeks to recover the human aspect of genuine communication, exchanging perspectives in the safety of mutual understanding and respect and balancing the need to understand with the need to be understood.
