Author(s): Mahesh Yadav, Sanjit Sardar
Abstract: Teaching/Instruction requires effective communication. In order to facilitate effective communication approaches of communication are essential. Methods or techniques of communication form the concrete bridge to help a learner reach his or her goal. An approach differs from a method which is a specific way of organising a few learning experiences. It can be described as a communication procedure that is planned and unified to help the learners and instructors to work together to attain the desired outcomes. It includes specific combinations of methods. For example, lecturing should be minimised and combined with other methods to bring about creative interaction between the instructors and learner to make learning permanent.
