Instead of lecturing or holding discussions in the classroom, I decided (one day a week) to move the classroom online to a social network (because duh, it’s a class about social media!)
First Twitter chat trial run in the classroom, spring 2015 at NDNU.

I feel lucky to have worked with her in two places, at SF State and Stanford University. Her implementation of a solid and sound social networking strategy for the School of Engineering should and can be replicated in a variety of settings. Her management style is hands-off … which inspired me to bring in new ideas and take risks I normally wouldn’t take. I feel lucky to have had the chance to work for her – and hope to work with and for her again.

Staci's expertise in social media and knack for cutting-edge technologies allowed the San Francisco State University Journalism Department to focus more on experimental/new media techniques, which better prepared students for the job market. Not only that, she mentored me in my development as a web developer and web producer. I would not be where I am today without her guidance and highly recommend her as both an educator and technology consultant.

She has a deep understanding of the fields of journalism and mass communication. Staci’s work with me demonstrated an ability to think logically, analytically and broadly. She also exhibits a true interest in developing that understanding and in conducting the research that would achieve that understanding.
