In today’s PR Research class, we discussed the students’ perceptions of what research is. I captured the essence of their thoughts (meaning I typed *most* of what I heard them say) and made a word cloud of it using Wordle. The words they said most frequently showed up larger, as in most word clouds.
At the end of the semester, we’ll check back and see if their thoughts about research have changed.
This semester, I am teaching PR Research (PRCA 4330 at Georgia Southern University) for the first time. Here’s a short video from Phil Gomes from Edelman Digital on the importance of research in public relations. (NOTE: You must be a member of PROpenMic to view this video clip.
