Associate Teaching Professor of Communication Studies
About James Rediger
Along with teaching online courses such as Business and Professional Communication, and Fundamentals of Public Speaking, Dr. Rediger is facilitating an exciting new Immersive Learning project with Inspire Academy – A School of Inquiry. Inspire Academy is a public, tuition free school, chartered by Ball State University. This project is fostering meaningful collaborations between Ball State and Inspire Academy. This Immersive Learning project is connected with Dr. Rediger’s COMM 340: Leadership Communication course, and is off to very exciting start. If he is not in his office with Sinatra playing in the background, he can be found playing his trumpet at Urban Light Community Church, or with Oldfield and the New Birds. He is also an avid runner and Ultimate Frisbee player, and will tell you that his favorite thing in the world is his family.
