Educators Academy, Educational Affairs Committee, and College of Fellows Session
Your Session ROI
Public relations education is in crisis with too many open teaching positions and too few Ph.D.’s to fill them. Bob Pritchard of the University of Oklahoma, Jeanette Drake of the University of Findlay, and Sandra C. Duhé of Southern Methodist University, introduce the highly acclaimed “Learning to Teach” series offered by the Educators Academy. They provide insight into how you can transition from the practice to the classroom, and share their journey into academe as well as the plusses and minuses of teaching.
