Anticipating a great semester…

I am always excited as a new semester approaches. However, this semester promises to be especially exciting because, for the first time, my students in COM341 Publicity Methods and I will be working with non-profit “clients” from all over the country — even though we’re based at Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ!

Social media and the Internet have made this possible. E-mail… Twitter… and more!

I’m working on our syllabus now and we’ll be using Joan Stewart‘s e-book “How to be a Kick-Butt Publicity Hound” as our textbook. September 9 is our start date, and we’ll be kicking off the semester by forming project teams and selecting our clients.

More info to follow soon… stay tuned!



  1. Hi Kathy,

    Sounds interesting & hope it goes well. Good to hear there are educators out there who don’t work off modules and chapters!

  2. This is a wonderful project- in some ways, similar to my event planning course. Teaching PR this year and using much in the way of Social Media and of course Twitter! Good luck and congrats on your creative teaching! UDL!

      Thanks, Suzanne! Like you, I try to bring the “real world” into all of my courses. I’m excited by the response/reaction so far, and I’m hoping my students enjoy the semester. I taught the PR courses at Rider last fall and LOVED the classes — enjoy! See you soon!
