Professor guest lectures at the United Nations 2015 Millennium Campaign and Advocacy Workshop
November 16, 2010
Dr. Payne was an invited guest lecturer and leader for the United Nations 2015 Millennium Campaign and Advocacy Workshop in Lisbon, Portugal, Nov. 10 -12. The U.N. Millennium Campaign was launched in 2002 to support civil society's efforts to hold political leaders accountable for the promises they made at the UN in 2000, to create a world without extreme poverty, where all citizens have access to education and healthcare - a sustainable world. These commitments were translated in specific targets: the Millennium Development Goals, that must be in place before 2015. This is the second year Dr. Payne was invited to lead the advocacy workshop.
Dr. Angela N. Hosek and her colleague Dr. Rebecca DiVerniero received the Top Paper Award (out of 155 papers submitted) for their project titled, "Twitter as a Classroom Tool: Exploring the Use, Benefits, and Downfalls from the Perspectives of Instructors and Students," from the Human Communication and Technology Division. Dr. Hosek was also on the Top Panel for the Basic Course Division. Both took place at the National Communication Association Annual Meeting in November.
