Kuznekoff Speaks On Texting and Learning, and Gender in Online Gaming

Join Jeffrey Kuznekoff (Communication) at the Gardner-Harvey Library to discuss his research and publications on October 1 from 2:30pm-3:30pm.  

Dr. Kuznekoff will discuss two main areas of research: the impact of texting on student learning and how people respond differently to men and women in online gaming. His work on the texting in the classroom has demonstrated that active use of mobile devices during class hinders student learning, note taking, and performance on tests. Dr. Kuznekoff's most recent research has demonstrated that men and women are treated differently in an online multiplayer video game, with women receiving more negative comments than men. Light refreshments will be served.

Jeffrey H. Kuznekoff is an Assistant Professor of Communication and joined Miami University Middletown in the fall of 2013.  His research interests focus on how people use new communication technologies to interact with others and the ways that communication is altered by these new technologies.  His general areas of research interest include: computer-mediated communication, interpersonal communication, and instructional communication.   His most recent work examines the influence of student texting messaging, during classroom lecture, on student learning (Communication Education) and investigating issues of gender voice in multiplayer video gaming (New Media & Society).  He has received several teaching awards, including the 2012 Pamela J. Cooper Award for Teaching by the Central States Communication Association.
