IRINA ROZINA TO ATTEND NATIONAL COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION HOPE INSTITUTE FOR FACULTY DEVELOPMENT AT LUTHER COLLEGE, DECORAH, IOWA

Irina Rozina of Rostov-na-Donu, Russia, will participate in the National Communication Associations Hope Institute for Faculty Development, July 19-24, on the Luther College campus in Decorah, Iowa. I. Rozina will represent the Institute of Management Business and Law, Rostov-na-Donu, Russia.

Directed by Alan Lerstrom, Luther professor of communication/linguistics, and Joe Dailey, professor of communication, Carroll College, Waukesha, Wis., the annual institute is an assembly of many of the nations top scholars and teachers of communication, communication studies and linguistics.

The event also attracts a number of communication faculty members from educational institutions in foreign countries. NCA has awarded a $3,000 grant to the Luther communication/linguistics department to support the 2004 institute. About 35 NCA members are expected to participate in the July conference.

The institute will feature five seminars, each led by a distinguished scholar or teacher in the communication field. James Carey, CBS Professor of International Journalism at Columbia University, will lead the seminar Media, Culture and Critical Theory. Paula Tompkins, professor of communication studies, St. Cloud State University, will lead Should I or Shouldnt I? Moral Reasoning and Communication Ethics.

Other seminars are Communication theory: Conceptual Foundations of Practical Applications with Lynn Turner, professor in communication studies and the director of the interdisciplinary family studies program at Marquette University; Frontiers in Interpersonal Communication with Julia Wood, professor of communication studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Rhetoric: Bodies of Evidence with Davis Houck, professor of communication, Florida State University.

Ideally these seminars will provide learning opportunities that represent the very best of the graduate school experience, conference coordinator Lerstrom said of the 2004 NCA Hope Institute. This is a learning venue that allows communication professors to have intense and stimulating discussions about relevant issues without facing the pressure of tests and papers. After attending the Hope Conference, I have always returned to campus filled with ideas for teaching cutting- edge concepts in my classes.

Lerstrom, who is in his 16th year as a member of the communication/linguistics faculty at Luther, holds the masters degree from Illinois State University and the doctoral degree in communication from the University of Kansas. He has been active in NCA programs since 1982.

Attending the 2004 NCA Institute will be professors Olga Matyash and Irina N. Rozina, communication faculty at educational institutions in Russia and president and vice president of the Russian Communication Association. The 2004 institute is providing opportunities for communication teachers in Russia to establish connections with their professional peers in the United States.

The shift to much more open post-Soviet systems of communication puts them in a position of starting some courses and some programs from scratch, and they are eager to converse with Americans about how we think and how we teach, said institute co-director Dailey.

The NCA Hope Institute for Faculty Development is hosted each year by a liberal arts college with outstanding library, a strong communication/linguistics academic program and good communications/technology resources. Luther has served as conference host since 2002.
