In the midst of this media revolution, Yanick Rice Lamb has helped to keep the curriculum current so that students in the Department of Media, Journalism and Film can successfully compete with others applying for graduate school or employment as well as develop successful businesses, films and other enterprises.
Yanick Rice Lamb discusses digital magazines at AEJMC’s Southeast Colloquium at Virginia Tech. She later co-authored a chapter with Kendra Desrosiers, a Howard and MIT graduate who is now at Google. “The Seven Sisters and Their Siblings Go Digital: An Analysis of Women’s Magazine Content on Websites, iPads and Cell Phones” is featured in the book Social Media: Pedagogy and Practice.
Yanick Rice Lamb has received accolades for her hard work, dedication and willingness to serve. Her involvement in the School of Communications has increased each year. She does so much more that goes undocumented on campus, in the community and for media organizations. Here, she returns for Career Day at Ghoulson Middle School in Prince Georges County, Maryland.
The Executive Leadership Council invited Yanick Rice Lamb to return for its main event in Minneapolis after a successful Fireside Chat the previous year in Chicago between Yanick and Julianne Malveaux, then president of Bennett College. Yanick leads a lively forum on black women and power with Ebony executives Linda Johnson Rice and Desiree Rogers at the Women’s Leadership Summit.
Committed to enhancing her skills and knowledge base, Yanick Rice Lamb regular participates in webinars, workshops and conferences such as the American Magazine Conference (left). Her courses and research benefit as she learns about best practices and interacts with other academics and industry leaders.
My commitment to learning and growing along with my students is consistently high. I am always seeking innovative teaching methods and best practices in the classroom to bring out the best in students with varied learning styles. In addition, I take advantage of professional development to enhance my journalistic skills, research methods and intellect so that I can grow as a scholar and faculty member, as well as contribute to Howard University’s legacy. I have participated in as many workshops, conferences, webinars and self-directed tutorials as possible — some through fellowships.
