I won a teaching award!

This happened a couple of weeks ago…. And came as a complete shock. At a Commerce function I was presented with The Kellstadt Marketing Center Distinguished Professional Educator Award” for excellence in teaching.

I was presented with a snazzy certificate and a rather nice award (which is now safely ensconced in the office). I was not expecting this, I don’t feel as if I really deserve this, but I was very happy to receive it.

Guest Lectures

I have been preparing materials for the MKT:595 Internet Marketing class here at DePaul. Some experts in the industry have kindly offered to be filmed for the upcoming classes. Ed Brill came into DePaul last Thursday and we filmed him against a greenscreen. We should have this footage converted to RealMedia and iTunes/iPod/iPhone clips fairly shortly. I am really excited about having industry experts available to our students in this format. I find that there is only so much information that can be processed in a “live” class. Having access to engaging presentations in a portable, recorded format improves the learning experience. So far we have been lucky to gain the insight of: I have a few more folks preparing to be filmed over the next month. I think DePaul students will love to see these guest lectures.
