Unformatted text preview: COMM 111: NONVERBAL COM M LECTURE WEEK 1 Intro to Nonverbal Comm o Basic Interpersonal Communication model SMCR-F (Sender- message -channel -receiver- feedback) Verbal or nonverbal Mediation=channel (computer, face-to-face) Message delivered is not always the message that is received No response or explicit action can be feedback (wide range) Brief convo in class Hand gestures (mirrored) Personal space respected wide amount of personal space, considering they do not know one another (proxemics) Eye roll when mentioning 3 hour class; eye contact Vocalics- tone of voice, how long they spoke, how the convo flowed, awkwardness, laughter, pitch of voice Body positions- what they mean dominance o Psychology v.
