It’s A Wrap!

The Fall quarter has wrapped up and I have to say that the first leg on the MSC trek has been quite enjoyable and positively life changing!  After convening every Saturday at the Searle building, it was a refreshing change of pace to spend last week together off campus during our MSC Practicum Intersession.  Many valuable lessons were delivered by some of the most respected in the field of communication who came to share their expertise with our group.  We engaged in dialogue about how to respond to a crisis situation within our lives and at the workplace in our Crisis Management session led by Professor Rein.  Then, we explored the complexities involving freedom of speech and expression while in the Dilemmas in the Laws of Free Expression session with Professor DeSanto.

Over the holiday break from school and work, I’m looking forward to reevaluating my online identity with the social media platforms I use – another lesson covered last week in the Identity Management Online session led by Professor Hargittai.   The points made in that session prompted me to think critically about my online presence and encouraged me to bring awareness to those topics more important to me – those things that make me unique.

I really wish we could all have more weeks like this, what a great time to collaborate and learn from these distinguished faculty members and my classmates while refining our skills as we become masters of communication.
