Challenging the Videoconferencing Gold Standard: Art Therapy and Tele-Mediated Communication in Behavioral Telehealth (07 Mar 2003)
In this presentation, Kate will give an overview of the work being done at UBC as a starting point for discussing research from a wide range of fields in which modes of mediated and non-mediated communication have been compared on measures related to task completion and relationship formation. She will highlight key differences between visual and verbal, written and spoken, and synchronous and asynchronous communication that have been identified, and examine why videoconferencing is often preferred, in spite of the demonstrated superiority of audio-only communication for most types of distance interpersonal interactions.
