    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Every class was impactful and we were always challenged by Dr. McAninch to brainstorm on the ideas involved in the dark side of interpersonal communications. This course wasn't something that you dreaded going to, but rather you were excited to delve into another topic because every day we discussed the material as a class, as a whole. Dr. McAninch used games to engage our learning and would often encourage us to talk with a neighbor or a new classmate we haven't met yet just to simply introduce ourselves and potentially make a new friend; to make us comfortable.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. McAninch and our peer assistant Daniel would use Kahoot! to quiz us on the material we just went over and everyone in class would get hyped about who can answer the fastest and quickest to get their name on the leaderboards and as a reward, there was often an incentive of candy or extra credit. Also, Kahoot! was used to discuss how we felt about our exams and what Dr. McAninch could possibly do to improve exams and reviews. I learned a lot of aspects of the dark side of communicating with everyone around me: close or strangers. Even when you think you're doing something right, it can be translated differently and even having good intentions can still be perceived as the dark side. So many different things about communication is misleading! With my major being Mechanical Engineering, which is polar opposite of anything related to communication, I thoroughly enjoyed this course because it eased my stress from college and would make the semester a little better because I didn't hate every class- I was actually engaged and having fun expressing myself because Dr. McAninch doesn't believe in any wrong answers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class!! Be sure to take notes and try to engage in class. Communicate with your professor!! They're here to help you succeed, and they're not scary. Do your readings and develop an understanding for the material you've read and don't be afraid to ask questions.
