In the past I taught courses in interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, advanced intercultural communication, international sojourning/study abroad, communication research methods, international media systems, public speaking, rhetorical criticism, communication & 9/11. intro. to communication, nonverbal communication, quantitative methods, diffusion of innovations,  organizational communication and organizational diversity management. Currently at Norfolk State University I am teaching intercultural communication, news/media writing, intro. to mass media, media technologies, digital photography, international/global communication and research methods.  I also teach the intro to mass media, media technologies, international communication and intercultural communication courses at the graduate level at NSU.  I am always interested in teaching new classes.  I'm currently thinking about courses in social media, media criticism, script writing and science/health news writing.  See my CV for some more teaching details.
