Teaching involves the transfer of knowledge at two levels—group communication and personal communication. Personal communication between the faculty and the student is a valuable component of the learning experience which supplements in-class lectures. This paper examines the perceptions of the faculty of a small state university about their usage of personal communication in a face to face, e-mail, and telephone context.
