Teachers of higher education classes in communication and media research must develop new competencies for the “new normal” in which learning takes place in mediated environments and face-to-face fieldwork is difficult to implement.
To help address the challenges of this new normal, the Department of Communication Research, as the CHED Center of Excellence in Communication, is hosting a series of conversations on transitioning the teaching and conduct of research to the new normal. The sessions are an opportunity to share practical tips, techniques, and takeaways.
The month-long series will take place every Tuesday, from 10AM to 11AM, from August 11 to September 1, 2020. It is free-of-charge and caters mainly to HEI and SHS teachers of communication and media research.
