Assistant Professor, Department of Communications, Media Ethics Course/Service Learning, College of Letters Arts Sciences
2014-2015 Ethics Project
Developed a Media Management (COMM4500) course taught in the fall 2014 semester at UCCS. The course was offered to both undergraduate and graduate students in a hybrid format. As a new course, eight students enrolled in the course, however larger class sizes in future are anticipated. The reach of the course expanded beyond the classroom, as the students worked with outside organizations to address an ethical media management dilemma (eight organizations). The class hosted three guest speakers who are leaders in local media. The class affected approximately 20 people.
After participating in the Daniels Fund Consortium Ethics Summit on social media, Dr. Brengarth organized a Media Management Ethics Summit student workshop at UCCS held in November 2014.
