Karen Turner Ward holds a doctoral degree in Criticism and Public Address from Regent University. Dr. Ward has the distinction of being the first student to earn a Ph.D. from the University. Dr. Ward currently serves as Chair of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Hampton University where she teaches communication and theatre courses. She serves on the School of Liberal Arts and Education University 101 (First-Year Experience) Advisory Committee and assists in the development of the course curriculum. She also helped prepare the course’s interactive textbook, The Individual and Life: Your Pathway to Success. She has served as a national consultant on recruitment, assessment, and retention of African American students.
To meet student needs, Dr. Ward has incorporated innovative approaches to instruction and introduced technology into traditional instructional programming. It was this search for innovative approaches to instruct “today’s students” that inspired her to write the communication textbook, Communication for Today’s Student, now in its fourth edition. The textbook, published by Kendall Hunt Publishing, is accompanied by an interactive program, which enables students to submit assignments online, sit for digital exams, take practice tests and post-tests, and absorb the material through interactive games and flash cards. This program enables students as well as instructors to obtain immediate assessment results. The overwhelming success of this program inspired Dr. Ward to develop both the Humanities One Interactive and Humanities Two Interactive textbooks.
Dr. Ward has received numerous awards for her commitment to innovative teaching, including the coveted, E. L. Hamm Distinguished Teaching Award presented each academic year by the University President.
