I'm really excited about teaching principles of marketing online this summer! As a teacher, it's really interesting to create a class that's challenging and informative and captivating (is that too strong a word?) for the students who are taking it, within the limitations of the online environment -- it's so different from thinking about a class that's delivered face-to-face.
It's also been fun trying to figure out how to keep the humanity in a course that everyone (including me) is going to experience while sitting in front of individual computers... I don't want anyone to ever think that this class is being run by a robot, because I know how much time and effort I've put into it already, and it hasn't even started yet! I hope the tone and content of my online interactions with my students shows how much I love teaching, and how much I want to you to succeed -- not just in this class, but throughout your school careers, and lives :-)
I guess we'll learn what works and what doesn't, huh?
PS Let's kick off the conversation with a pretty easy question: Does anyone know what the above image is from? Who's seen it? What did you think? Answer in the comments section! Let's get to know each other!
