Title: Communication Instructor
Because so much of what we know and how we understand each other happens
through communication concepts, I would like to offer the following metaphor
as my teaching philosophy: Being a communication instructor is like being a
tour guide. As a tour guide through the different concepts and skills
involved in Communication classes, I recognize that some of the skills and
terrain may be familiar to students. We may all know how to sightsee, shop
for souvenirs, eat local foods, I want to make sure that everyone in the
tour sees and experiences the important local sights and culture and trusts
me enough to know that everywhere we go are places Iíve been before and
that the bridge may seem rickety, it will hold all of us safely across.
Practicing communication can be scary, but I promise to bring joy,
excitement and illuminate new things during our trip.
