About Dr. Child
Dr. Child has been particularly interested in utilizing communication privacy management theory as a framework for understanding the way social media users think about the overall management of their online disclosures.
In addition, he explores how the family reflects a unique culture where unique rules, roles and communication practices emerge and ensue. His scholarship in this area examines communication about family problems, how families coordinate narratives and cover stories among members for effective functioning, family communication practices in different cultures and finally how relational cultures are developed and sustained through the establishment of rituals.
The final area of Dr. Child’s expertise in instructional communication began when he was a basic course director at NDSU and established a practice of making all curricular changes from an assessment data-based standpoint. His research in instructional communication informs effective classroom communication practices.
