Teaching Communication and Media Theory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This group will share how they teach theory in graduate courses. Several studies examining the state of theory show that we as academics do little to extend theory. Bryant and Miron found in a content analysis of journals that theory was merely referenced if it was included. Potter and Riddle discovered that most (65%) journal articles were not guided by theory. One way to address this problem is to critically address how we teach theory.
