I have several years of experience teaching undergraduate courses, both online and in-person, at Merrill College.
As instructor-of-record, I have taught:
Introduction to Mass Communication, a survey course for non-journalism majors. The course introduces students to concepts such as media literacy, audiovisual media, social media, public relations and advertising, interactive media, media law and ethics, media theory, and global media.
Journalism History, Roles and Structures, the first required course in the journalism major. The course provides an overview of the development of journalism in the United States, emphasizing the impact of diverse voices on the evolution of journalistic institutions.
In addition, I have served as a graduate teaching assistant for several journalism lecture courses with enrollments ranging from 60 to 90 students.
Based on my teaching experience and research interests, I am equipped to teach a variety of skills-based and knowledge-based undergraduate and graduate courses in journalism and mass communication, as well as courses that emphasize my specialty areas of gender, race, and ethics in media.
