Elon University was well represented at the national convention of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication at Miami Beach Aug. 7-10.

Dean Paul Parsons, an elected member of AEJMC's Standing Committee on Teaching, presented a workshop to division teaching chairs on concepts and techniques to enhance the teaching role.

A.J. Fletcher Professor David Copeland, co-editor of Media History Monographs, participated in two convention panels - one on "Publishing in Academic History Journals" and the other on the role of religion in the history course titled "Rethinking Journalism History: The 'R' Factor."

Associate professor Byung Lee presented a research paper in the Communications Technology and Policy Division titled "Small Dailies' Web Sites: The Current Status and Strategies in an Economic Slowdown."

Assistant professor Brooke Barnett teamed with Indiana University colleague Amy Reynolds to present "This Just In: How National TV News Handled the Breaking Live Coverage of Sept. 11" in the Communication Theory and Methodology Division.

Instructor David Loomis presented "Tale of Two Cities: Connections Between Community, Corporate Culture and Public Journalism" to the Civic Journalism Interest Group and also moderated a "Building Zones of Connectivity" teaching session.
