Teaching in the communication management (MCG) program, Brad Shipley aspires to provide a learning experience that will result in the practical application of communication theory and research by exposing students to a variety of pedagogical approaches. An advocate for experiential learning, Shipley has designed many learning simulations and has had articles published in leading experiential learning journals. He currently teaches classes on topics such as leadership, group communication and persuasion. He also partners with a core group of faculty to teach the capstone courses by teaching communication research methods and guiding students as they conduct research projects.
Shipley earned his PhD from USC Annenberg in organizational communication. His current research uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to better understand organizational justice in the workplace. He has also provided training and development consulting for such organizations as the United States Peace Corps, Edwards Pharmaceuticals, and Westinghouse. He is married to his high school sweetheart Anne, and they have three children: Chandler, Jessica and Sophie.
