Office hours

Hi CB classes,

In order to get ready for the conference I'm going to this weekend, I need to cancel my office hours tomorrow.

I'll be around campus getting things together, but won't necessarily be in my office. Please let me know if you need to talk to me before I leave town. Otherwise, I'll likely be out of touch until I get back next week.


A good potential reference

This is a project from Western Illinois University that's quite similar to our wiki CB glossary.

You might want to check to see if there's anything here that you can use when working on your pages and/or case studies.

See y'all tomorrow,

Book in library

Hi all,

I've put a copy of the textbook on reserve in the library.

Since there were a few people who requested this, I put it on 2-hour checkout. I hope this works, as far as letting everyone who needs to have a chance to use it.

(Unfortunately, the only options are 30 min, 2 hr, and 24 hr checkouts. If only there were a 4 hour option... Alas!)

Good luck with your cases, and I'll see you on Wednesday!

Hi everyone,

You'll need to submit all your case studies to TurnItIn before you give them to me.

You'll note that there are two sections of this class -- make sure you're in the right place!

The ID # for the 8:00 class is 2604157 and the password is "montana"
The ID # for the 9:30 class is 2604159 and the password is "turnitin"

Please set up your TurnItIn account THIS WEEK. In order to safeguard the secrecy of the course information, I'll be deleting this blog post this weekend, so it's important that you go ahead and get into the system ASAP.

When you submit your papers to TurnItIn, they should have only your code name and class time on them. Do NOT use your real name, SSN, Banner ID, or any other identifying information!

Case #1

Hi everyone,

Now that we're well into the semester, you can get crackin' on the first case study.

Please note that you'll need to do a lot of reading from the text, and/or from the wiki, as well as reading the articles I've provided, in order to answer the questions.

Also, please note that chapter numbers & topics might change, depending on the edition of the book that you're using. Therefore, I've provided subject information in addition to the chapter numbers to guide your reading.

Also, please note that students who don't budget enough time to work on this assignment (i.e., start working on it at 10:00 pm the night before it's due) are usually cranky and tired the next day. I'm just saying...

ALSO, please note that your participation in the discussion regarding the case is crucial. You can't just drop off your case and not come to class. (Well, you can, but your absence will be noted.)

FINALLY, please note that I don't/ can't/ never have accepted emailed assignments.

Super Bowl Madness

Hi CB scholars,

I'm so glad that there are motivated (or procrastinating) graduate students in the world, who spend time compiling information that benefits us all...

What am I talking about? This excellent resource for all the Super Bowl ads that debuted during yesterday's game.

Happy viewing!
