This conceptual review article is written to help educational researchers, teachers, and students understand the main ideas in instructional communication and their role as the most important part of successful teaching and learning. To achieve this objective, the positive psychology movement and the rhetorical and relational goal theory in instructional communication were used to determine whether teachers who communicate well with each other help students achieve a wide range of positive academic outcomes.
- Students and teachers have an important relationship because they are both responsible for the success of the teaching and learning processes.
- A good relationship between a teacher and a student is marked by empathy, care, involvement, trust, and respect.
In adaptive instruction, it is assumed that teachers have to change how they teach to fit the needs of their students.
Students and teachers have an important relationship because they are both responsible for the success of the teaching and learning processes (Delos Reyes & Torio, 2021). So, they must work together to set up good conditions for learning. Instructors help create these conditions by using relationship-building techniques linked to good student experiences (Bolkan et al., 2015). Learning is more than just getting information. It also includes social, psychological, and emotional interactions (Wallace, 2003). So, effective teaching usually happens when the relationship between the teacher and the student is good (Strachan, 2020).
