Wednesday, October 13th at 8:30 p.m. is #PRStudChat with our panel of educators and a focus on social media in the classroom. We want to thank all of our students who nominated a favorite educator to participate on the panel. It’s my pleasure to announce the panelists:
- Karen Russell (@KarenRussell) PR professor at the University of Georgia. Editor of the Journal of Public Relations Research
- Robert French (@rdfrench) Professor of Public Relations at Auburn University, creator of several PR / digital media related sites including PROpenMic.org
- Brooke Fisher Liu (@bfliu) Professor at the University of Maryland whose research primarily examines how government organizations manage communication during crisis and non-crisis situations (winning professor for last year’s #PRStudChat Twitter Chat Challenge)
- Barbara Nixon (@BarbaraNixon) Assistant Professor, Southeastern University; Adjunct professor, Georgia Southern University; teaches a variety of public relations and journalism courses, both online and face-to-face
- Andi Narvaez (@andinarvaez) Graduate Student and Instructor, University of Maryland two sections of the COMM107 undergraduate course — Oral Communication: Principles and Practice
- Melanie James (@Melanie_James) lecturer in communication in the School of Design, Communication, and Information Technology, at the University of Newcastle, Australia, specializing in public relations education and research.
Our panel will be sharing insights on everything from their thoughts on the most creative examples of social media in the classroom to what’s a best practice approach to being friends with students in social networks. A reminder to our students: we’re asking you to do your homework before the chat by coming prepared with a link to share a favorite social media classroom project. It could be a class blog or wiki that you feel really helped your learning process. Shortly after the session, we’ll select the five most interesting projects and then ask the #PRStudChat community to vote on the single project that they liked the most. A prize will be awarded to the winning class and the professor. We hope that you will join us for this special #PRStudChat session with our educator panel. “See” you on Wednesday night!
