Welcome to episode #005 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Melissa Agnes and Karen Freberg.
Dr. Karen Freberg is paving the way for professors and students alike. She’s an engaging professor at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky, who teaches and researches on subjects like social media for PR and crisis communication – and she’s about to take this semester’s crisis communications grad class to a whole new level.
How, you might ask? Put it this way: her midterm exam is going to be an actual crisis simulation! Now that’s edgy, exciting and invaluable in terms of combining theory and practice for grad students.
In this episode, Karen and I discuss:
- The social professor / educator: Risks and benefits for themselves as well as their students.
- Ways to help students manage their online reputation, for both their academic and professional careers.
- How to combine research and practice in the classroom to really benefit students – and their future employers.
- The pos and cons of blogging and being more open and connected on social media, as both an individual and a professional.
- And a whole bunch more!
It’s a great conversation filled with valuable insights, strategies and observations. Whether you’re an educator, a student or a professional working for an organization, this podcast is definitely one that you won’t want to miss.
