The student is able to process and reproduce relevant ideas and details from important scientific articles in the areas of emotion and communication science.
The student is able to describe factors that influence successful communication and the influence of emotions on communication.
The student is able to describe the most common pitfalls in communication (e.g., linguistic biases, restrictions of CMC) and to formulate strategies to reduce the risk of miscommunication.
The student can describe the different modalities in which emotions can be communicated (e.g., facial, vocal, textual) and their communicative consequences, in particular with respect to valence (positive versus negative emotion). In addition, the student is able to assess the usefulness of this information for several applications (e.g., persuasion, life satisfaction, social signal processing).
The student is able to critically review scientific articles on the topic of miscommunication and emotion and to relate different articles and topics to each other.
The student is able to apply the knowledge from the course to a practical question and present concrete ideas on how to improve communication.
The student is able to design (and conduct) their own study in the field of miscommunication or emotion.
 
Content
This course consists of two parts. The first part of the course is about miscommunication. The main questions that are discussed are: When does communication go wrong? Which theories can predict miscommunication? What are the processes that influence successful and unsuccessful communication? What can we do to avoid miscommunication? These questions are answered for different kinds of communication (e.g. inter-group communication, electronic communication, male-female communication).
The second part of the course centers around the following questions: How do we communicate our emotions to others? What role do emotions play in successful and unsuccessful communication? Emotional communication will be studied in the verbal, facial, and linguistic domain. Positive (laughing, smiling, and happiness) and negative emotions (crying and tears) will receive special attention. From a practical perspective, the student will learn to assess the role of emotion in areas such as design, marketing, and social signal processing.
