Verbal intimacy (Baker 2003, Freitasm, Myers and Avtgis 1998, Gorham 1988, Hutchins 2003) creates a higher percieved cognition and affective learning. It can be defined by:

  • Initiating discussions
  • Asking questions
  • Using humor
  • Using self-disclosure
  • Addressing students by name
  • Using inclusive pronouns (“we are going to….”
  • Responding quickly and frequently
  • Praising others (not blowing sunshine)
  • Conveying attentiveness and engagement

However, in the study presented by the presenters, the only measurable difference between a group taught in a VI way vs. a non-VI way was that the Non-VI group accessed online resources (documents and discussion posts) more. The scores, hits to the site and amount posted were the same.
