At DePaul University I teach courses in new media, digital media production and social media with the College of Communication’s Journalism Program, as well as in environmental communication. I am currently developing a new upper-level undergraduate course in climate change communication.  I recently sat down to talk about how my research informs my teaching with the DePaul Newsline.

Examples of my syllabi from DePaul are:

Communication Studies 326: Environmental Politics and Rhetoric

Journalism 275: Introduction to Journalism

While in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I had the opportunity to teach a variety of material, including: a social media internship, radio and video production, composition and public speaking, as well as introduction to communication theory. Below are a selection of syllabi for my courses. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are ones which I designed or significantly revised prior to the start of the course.
