SF STATE NEWS -- With the support of one of those grants, Merrigan and a Communication Studies team are revamping Communication Studies 150: Fundamentals of Oral Communication, one of their department’s core classes. The goal: make teaching the course online more equitable and more effective while incorporating lesson plans that build students’ skills as anti-racism advocates.
“SF State faculty take great pride in teaching effectively,” Merrigan said. “I personally will do cartwheels if I think it will help a student learn. In this case, many faculty [members] are working really hard to ensure that we create top-notch teaching and learning with our students during fall 2020.”
