The next faculty member we would like to introduce you to is Ashley Pikel, Lecturer in the Department of Communication.
Professor Pikel teaches public speaking and loves being able to help her students conquer their fears of the subject. She is able to cultivate a low stress environment that includes no dress code and frequent visits from her cat so her students can learn to feel comfortable speaking in front of others. Additionally, Professor Pikel is always there for her students when they need help.
Professor Pikel has found many positive aspects of online learning. The chat function has been especially useful as it has allowed introverted students who may not normally speak up in class to participate through the chat. Even so, she is excited for when things get back to normal and she can experience walking over a crowded library bridge once more.
Professor’s advice to communication students is to not give up and to keep working towards their goals! She believes her students are capable of great things.
