Sarwanto (2016) Improved Communication Competence For Physics Students Teacher
Communication competence is important to the teachers to transform their knowledge and skills. One disadvantage of the physics education student is verbal communication skills. This study aims to improve communication skills of the students using a visual - verbal representations based learning. This research method is a quasi - experimental, the sampl e were students of physical education department. Quantitative data were analyzed by time series. The results showed a significant increase communication skills after participating in learning with visual - verbal representations. Oral communication skills d evelop faster than written communication. Further efforts are needed to improve written communication skills for students of physics education, given at the end of the course the student must make a scientific paper.
