Spring 2016: Teaching with Blogs

This spring semester I have integrated a blog into my Grassroots Digital Advocacy graduate course at American University. Students are blogging on tech-related events in the D.C. area, as well as reviewing the use of social media in the 2016 presidential primaries. You can read their work and find out more about the course here:

I’m not the only one teaching with blogs this semester. A group of 40 students from across AU and several faculty members traveled to New Hampshire to report on the recent primary elections in the Granite State. Check out their fantastic reports here:

New Job, New City, New Institution: American University

Earlier this month I started a new job as tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Public Communication Division at American University’s School of Communication. It’s incredibly exciting to be in Washington, DC and I received the warmest of welcomes from a fantastic group of colleagues with whom I look forward to collaborating over the coming years. Following several weeks of anticipation, teaching starts today and it’s terrific to meet the students too, who are the center of a very vibrant learning and research community here at AU. Keep an eye out for more updates from DC in the coming weeks, but now I need to run to go teach another class!
