The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Elected Standing Committee on Teaching is devoted to improving the quality of teaching at colleges and universities in the United States and the rest of the world.

This book provides excellent, down-to-earth information-and wisdom-on teaching. Everyone who teaches would improve by reading it. -- Richard Cole, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
What a treasure trove of tips, guidance, examples, quotes, resources and, above all, encouragement for today's journalism and mass communication educators from some of the best teachers in the field. Master Class is a readable, well-organized guide that is just as valuable for the first-time instructor as it is for the senior faculty member looking for new ideas. Reading this was a guilty pleasure, as it was downright fun but also an investment in my personal growth as a teacher. -- Jennifer D. Greer, University of Alabama
This publication is timely and needed. Mass communication instruction is becoming more challenging because of unprecedented changes in the professions we serve, the technology we use, and the students we engage in the learning process. Every component of instruction and advising should be carefully developed and tested for greater impact. This book will be a great addition to teaching classes at both the master's and doctoral levels, as well as training programs for junior faculty and professionals who transition from the practice to academia. -- Juan-Carlos Molleda, University of Oregon
This compilation offers inspiration and practical advice for anyone who is new to the academy and especially adjuncts and lecturers. Even someone who has been in higher education for years will find useful suggestions. I am going to buy this book for all our new faculty. -- Ann M. Brill, University of Kansas
