Participants were 201 undergraduate students who either attended a lecture where the instructor gave students choices over the…

Harris, Tina M.; Lee, Celeste N. – Communication Education, 2019
The data on race and representation in post baccalaureate education reveal two dominant trends: (1) higher education remains a predominantly white institution within society, and (2) there are not enough faculty of color (FOC) in academia to serve as role models, mentors, and advocates for graduate students of color (SOC); therefore, it is…

That is, in some cases students who received lower grades on their initial speech assignments made substantial improvements on their subsequent speeches. In other studies, scholars have reported the exact opposite finding.…

McConnell, Kathleen F. – Communication Education, 2019
Contingent faculty are often under-resourced, suggesting that crucial aspects of our discipline receive inadequate support. Moreover, while the discipline increasingly relies on tenure-ineligible faculty, it has made few contributions to the scholarship on academic casualization, an employment trend in which temporary contracts replace stable…
