Jo Nesmith (Ed.D. University of South Dakota) has designed and taught the online SPCM 101 course for over 10 years.
The primary concepts taught in her courses are threefold: A) mastery of personal voice; B) development of research skills; and C) empathy for others. These principles are grounded in the belief that most institutions infer that these skills are readily at hand for a graduate of a baccalaureate program.
