This study evaluates the seriousness of communication barriersfor the following five teaching methods. (1) straight lecture, (2) prepared case studies, (3) experiential exercises, (4) computer simulation, and (5) “live” case studies. The results of this study indicate the presence of 13 communication barrier clusters or factors that concern students. A number of significant differences exist for six of the clusters among the five teaching methods.
