Question 1 Explanation: 
 

Common Barriers to Effective Communication:

  • The use of jargon. Over-complicated, unfamiliar and/or technical terms.
  • Emotional barriers and taboos. Some people may find it difficult to express their emotions and some topics may be completely 'off-limits' or taboo. Taboo or difficult topics may include, but are not limited to, politics, religion, disabilities (mental and physical), sexuality and sex, racism and any opinion that may be seen as unpopular.
  • Lack of attention, interest, distractions, or irrelevance to the receiver. (See our page Barriers to Effective Listening for more information).
  • Differences in perception and viewpoint.
  • Physical disabilities such as hearing problems or speech difficulties.
  • Physical barriers to non-verbal communication. Not being able to see the non-verbal cues, gestures, posture and general body language can make communication less effective. Phone calls, text messages and other communication methods that rely on technology are often less effective than face-to-face communication.
  • Language differences and the difficulty in understanding unfamiliar accents.
  • Expectations and prejudices which may lead to false assumptions or stereotyping.  People often hear what they expect to hear rather than what is actually said and jump to incorrect conclusions. Our page The Ladder of Inference explains this in more detail.
  • Cultural differences.  The norms of social interaction vary greatly in different cultures, as do the way in which emotions are expressed. For example, the concept of personal space varies between cultures and between different social settings. See our page on Intercultural Awareness for more information.

Question 2 Explanation: 
  Why use small group discussion?
  • Students enjoy it
  • It allows active involvement by everyone
  • The shy and less articulate are more able to contribute
  • Students learn from each other
  • Everyone gets more practice at expressing their ideas
  • A two way discussion is almost always more creative than individual thoughts
  • Social skills are practiced in a 'safe' environment e.g. tolerance, cooperation
  • Discussion is essential to clarify arguments for a topic where there are no 'right answers'
Hints on running small group discussion
  • Make sure that the task is clear and has definite product which has to be communicated back.
  • Make sure they have enough knowledge and resources to complete the task.
  • Don't let it run for too long. Some groups will stray off task.
  • Drop in on groups for short periods with support or challenge as appropriate.
  • Make sure that seating allows everyone in the group to see each other, best round a table not side by side.
  • Do not allow one group to become too noisy. They will attract interest from other groups, who will then lose their own identity.
  • Normally groups work best with friends because they trust them but be prepared to break up groups which are not working. Some members will be pleased.
  • Allow time for feedback at the end and value the contributions of all groups.
