Distraction No More: Social Media encourages media outside the classroom

February 14, 2014

For students enrolled in POLS 0010: “Introduction to the American Political Process” this semester, class began well before the syllabus was handed out and continues each week beyond the walls of their lecture hall. 

Wendy Schiller, associate professor of political science and public policy, communicates with students in her course via Twitter.

“Attn: Brown students. Teaching POLS 0010 IntroAmerpolprocess nxt semester let’s start the conversation now using #introamerican,” Schiller tweeted Nov. 4, nearly three months before the course was slated to begin.
