The annual Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) conference took place in Washington, D.C., from August 6th through August 9th. This year too, the gathering brought together hundreds of research scholars, educators, and practitioners from around the world. The conference is a go to place for anyone interested in knowing more about the latest research in the wider field of Communication.
The AEJMC conference featured a number of high quality presentations, papers and demonstrations. This year, I attended AEJMC to present on a panel discussing the practical, theoretical and ethical challenges and strategies of teaching digital analytics. As Director of the SMART Lab at Ohio University, I shared my experiences regarding ethical challenges of teaching digital analytics. The overall panel comprised the following members:
