June NCA Speaker Series Recap

July 8, 2020

In light of NCA’s summer event cancellations due to COVID-19, NCA released four online seminars in June as part of a special speaker series. Each seminar contains five videos aimed at offering faculty and students the opportunity to learn about new and different directions in Communication research and teaching. Seminar titles and leaders are listed below, with links to NCA’s YouTube playlist for each seminar. Seminar videos and readings are currently available on the NCA website and will be available in perpetuity for use in classroom teaching and for other teaching and learning purposes. Thank you to the seminar leaders who took time to share their expertise!
