"Different lecturers have significantly different styles… there's a lot of interaction and discussion… they knew they could sit and listen rather than frantically scribble."

Short paper

Contextual variations in communication briefly considers "context" as one of anthropologist and cross-cultural researcher Edward Hall's (1914-2009) three dimensions influencing cultural interactions: time, context and space. Hall viewed culture as influencing every aspect of human life. According to Hall, "it is the least studied aspect of culture that influences behaviour in the deepest and most subtle ways". (1977:14). Interesting use has been made of Hall's theory in the attempt to understand Malaysian culture and some of the Confucian Heritage cultures.
