I have worked as a professional journalist--practicing journalism and teaching it at the university level for about 30 years. I have a Ph.D. in mass communication and retired as a tenured associate professor at a respected university about four years ago. Throughout my career as a professor, I taught mostly skills courses in journalism--namely news reporting and writing, feature writing, editing and page design, mass media and society and community and civic journalism. I am also co-author of two novels--one published in 2014 and the other published in 2016--about life in a remote mountain community in post Civil War era East Tennessee. I've taught two online courses in public speaking in the last year.
Hands-on. Skills based. Experiential. The classroom--whether real or virtual--should be an exciting, dynamic laboratory for learning that prepares students for work as journalists in the real world.
