Comm Res Conversations

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.
