ECT 300 EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY: What role does time play in non-verbal communication in the teaching process?



2b i). Identify the role of time as a form of non-verbal communication in the teaching process.

2.9 Time as a variable in nonverbal communication.

Punctuality is generally considered as a sign of good behavior. Persistent lateness may imply:

  • That an individual wants to avoid something
  • That an individual thinks punctuality is not important
  • That an individual thinks the person to be met is not important enough to warrant the effort o be punctual
  • That probably the person has not been taught the importance of punctuality.

The moment two parties conceive time differently there is likely to be a communication breakdown
