Introduction to Communication Session Plan

Dear Prof. Rustum and Aashish,

Your comments are really wonderful and thanks a lot for sharing your input too. When I conducted this activity, I invited a faculty, from Engineering Department, who was familiar with this process of teaching learning or may be received some training through WIPRO Mission10X programmes and I made him as observer.  The outcomes or observations (Specific) made by the students are as follows:



  1. Shy learners do not come initially 
  2. The teacher may not complete this activity if too much time is taken by the students
3. The outcome is really felt by the shy learners that they have really improved their skills

The observer's comments

  1. Preparation of the session plan is really good
  2. Conduct of one – minute and two-minute role play activities to motivate the learners is excellent
  3. Teacher’s involvement is more
  4. Identifying a colleague from the core department to assess the presentation of the students is first of its kind.
I do hereby attach the  session plans for "Introduction to Communication" and "Group Communication".  I believe that the teaching fraternity would be more benefited.  Let's share the god-given gift of Knowledge others...

I do come and attach the plan for "Group Communication" when my special coaching class is over by 4.00 PM (IST). 

This is the session plan for 'Introduction to Communication" and you can conduct the session for One and half an hour...

Dear Sankarakumar


I found interesting your plan and presentation of the technology of teaching. It is indeed very clean and clear blueprint who will do what and how it would be applied and what would be its outcome in class. Yet Sankarakumar I am slightly skeptical about Blooms taxonomy when in reality we decide the pragmatic pedagogy to train ELTs or ElT students. If you could just take one frame of your whole blueprint of lesson plan i.e. "Introduction to Communication" then we would like to have from you how you have set this frame into small segments for discourse and to be interactive with students and finally inserting in it the Webskills, because when we frame small units of one of the sub-frames then it also stimulates teacher/supervisor/ program planner/teacher as co-learner to enrich himself first how he would respond to his own thought -process while planning his little units of communication in the class. I request you to first decide your action plan for each sub-frame and then your response to your steps will disseminate the learning skills on the part of the learner. I hope I may have made you understand the reality of pragmatics in the ELT pedagogy as well as heuristics of language application skills.

With regards

Dr. Jayshree Singh
