What is your style of teaching?
My style is active and student involved. I use a mixture of lecture, seminar, discussion, and student-led cases.
What materials and media do you use in the classroom?
In class, I use the white board and software. Out of class, I use podcasts, blogs, and Twitter. Students are expected to use social media tools.
What is the most engaging assignment you give?
All courses have a client-based project or a simulation. Knowledge map assignment shows students what and how they have learned in the course.
When grading a student, what do you look for?
I look for four things: argument, support for argument, grammar and spelling, and design.
What kind of student would love your class?
I want any student who will invest their time in the development of their knowledge. These students tend to add the most items to their knowledge map.
What is one piece of advice you have for students?
My courses remain time intensive. Manage your time to work from a position of strength, not from a position of weakness.
What area in your field are you most knowledgeable about?
I am most knowledgeable about research method and analysis as well as strategy.
What is one accomplishment you are proud of?
I was proudest while watching Julia Rice defend her honor's thesis and MKTG4100 groups presenting their respective Pecha Kuckas to Tim Hortons.
Are you currently involved in something interesting outside the classroom?
I am working on the development of the Otterbein Research Co-operative.
Is there anything else the student should know before taking your class?
Ask questions and offer insight. You want to advance the discussion.
