    The 2016 Paragon Award for Excellence in Distance Teaching was awarded to Robin Street, Senior Instructor in Journalism, for her JOUR 492 – PR Case Studies course.

    Street’s course is designed to catch students’ attention and guide them through the course right from the beginning. Information was organized in a way that eliminated the need to “wade through” other content, thus allowing students to immediately focus on coursework. She meets her students on Facebook where they discuss lesson learned from the cases. She works hard to create and maintain highly active discussions with real world examples from classic campaigns to the most updated cases, using multiple forms of media to maximize student engagement and maintain their interests.
