Last Call

What I posted on Communicators Anonymous

Last night was my final night teaching entry-level university marketing communications. I am a firm believer in lessons learned from each venture, so this is my list:

  • Do not speak in new media-geek
  • Power Point presentations for an evening class is not effective
  • Address why the class content is important to them (other than credit hours)
  • Identify the difference between hard and soft copy format

I am extremely proud of the students. Thank you to all of my peers who welcomed the students on your blogs and took time to incorporate them into the conversation.

"Most of us sense that real tolerance of other people’s shortcomings and viewpoints and a respect for their opinions are attitudes which make us more useful to others." Big Book p.19

Stay Tuned to Marketing Colloquy for spring semester class, Marketing: Sales Management!

Thank you!

    Thank you teach, I enjoyed the class and learned a lot. I am going to keep my typepad acct open, just to see if I do blog some more. I also wrote on the evaluation sheet that, since we are blogging it would be beneficial to the future classes if they can schedule marketing in the computer lab opposite of the MIS courses. It will help out, so that way on the first day of class you don’t have all those deer in the headlights look; like you did with our class. Talk with Mr. Gray and see if that can be a possibility. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
