I have been teaching Introduction to Interpersonal Communication at COD for over six years. Every semester, I see how it changes students' lives. Most people don't realize just how much is involved in interpersonal communication, but this course examines the process and gives practical techniques for improving relationships. It's very rewarding to hear students share their stories at the end of the semester and demonstrate how much they have learned and how much their relationships have improved as a result of this course. I think everyone should take it.
