Pauline Hope Cheong, Associate Professor of the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, was honored with the 2017 Master Teacher Award, by the Western States Communication Association (WSCA), Communication and Instruction Interest Group. She was presented with her award on February 19, 2017 at the annual WSCA convention, which was held this year in Salt Lake City, Utah. In a panel session dedicated to discussing her pedagogy, Dr. Cheong shared examples of how her teaching is enacted as critical conversation, catalyst for research (& vice versa), and collaborative practice. The first WSCA convention was held in 1929 in San Francisco.
