Digital Literacy X Diversity Literacy X Media Entrepreneurship
In my teaching, I integrate my digital media professional background and current mass communication industry economy and practice to emphasize the practical values that the theories have for my students’ professional career building. One of the unique characteristics of my teaching and course development is that I always incorporate technology application, digital literacy, diversity literacy, media entrepreneurship, and portfolio building/professional development into the main course subject in my course designs. I have independently developed and taught two courses (5 semesters), Visual Communication and Multiculturalism and the Media. Also, I was the technology director and core member of the LSU Cold Case Project, an investigative effort to bring closure to unsolved Civil Rights-era, Klan-related homicides in Louisiana and southern Mississippi.
I was the first place recipient of the Promising Professor Award at the 100th annual convention of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (#AEJMC2017) in Chicago, Illinois. This award honors instructors who demonstrate excellence and innovation in teaching.
