I am the coordinator for the strategic communication sequence in the Department of Communication. We have approximately 1200 majors in the Department of Communication, and a large number of those are in strategic communication. As coordinator, I organize our classes, find local professionals to teach, and develop new opportunities for our majors.

I also teach graduate courses in statistics, measurement, communication theory, and health communication. I teach HEDU 7103: Design & Analysis I. To date, I have always focused on the “analysis” part of the course – i.e., teaching students how to analyze data using SPSS. Starting in Summer 2017, I will have two versions of the course. My normal “analysis” focused version (taught every Spring) and my new “design” focused version. The latter will focus on how to design surveys, experiments, etc. Thus, a student can take HEDU 7103 twice, if they desire. The second time they take it, they can sign up for an independent study with me so they receive credit (even though the content is different, the course number HEDU 7103 isn’t repeatable, so you just take an independent study the second time). I will launch a new course, COMM 7000: Visual Communication, in Fall 2018. That course will focus on visual communication research and the construction/development of visual communication technology (e.g., immersive video cameras, ultra violet photography, etc).
