Communication Studies professor to discuss student-teacher relationships

Natalie Shubert, Ohio University visiting assistant professor of communication studies, will discuss how to enhance student learning with better communication strategies at 12:10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, in the Friends of the Library Room located in Alden Library 319.

Her talk, which is titled "Student-Instructor Relationships for Learning," is part of a series of faculty showcases coordinated by Ohio University Academic Technologies. These showcases focus on the use of technology for enhancing teaching and learning at Ohio University.   

Shubert excels at teaching interpersonal communication courses about relationships while simultaneously developing student-teacher relationships. Main points of her lecture will include policies of self-disclosure, tools for engaging with students in the classroom, and trust-building strategies for the modern classroom instructor.

An Ohio University alumna, Shubert earned her doctorate in 2010 from the Scripps School of Communication Studies. Her research emphasis is organizational and environmental communication, specifically community-based food organizing and local food systems.
