Shirene Bell, 2008
Shirene Bell began teaching communication at Brigham Young University in 1979. Her teaching experience also includes Utah Valley University, University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College in the communication, business and theatre & media arts departments. She serves on faculty senate and chairs faculty committees. She teaches a wide breadth of courses such as public speaking, small group communication, interpersonal communication, organizational communication, intercultural communication, managing diversity, debate and communication theory. This recent student feedback marks the heart of her teaching style.
"I could always tell that you sincerely cared about teaching us and having us actually learn something and walk away from the course with new employable skills. This was evident in how well-organized the course was and in how little time was wasted both in and out of the classroom."

Bell also teaches in corporate settings and has presented nationwide. She helped pioneer computer-interactive training programs for AT&T and write speeches for Congress in Washington D.C. Some of her recent research focuses on psychologically healthy workplaces and trust in global organizations. Her international living experiences in Asia, Africa and Europe give her practical insight into the challenges of communicating in diversity rich environments. When she is not working, she enjoys the harp, horses and tennis.
