Teaching Effectiveness: Goal 3

GOAL

Incorporate College of Business learning goals and objectives into courses.

My appointment within the Business Administration Department is half-time in Management and half-time in Human Resources. I try to balance my teaching schedule accordingly. The learning objectives and course goals on each of my course syllabi are derived from the published course description, which points toward the larger COB goals in professional business education and real world business situations. I offer the COB objectives, course descriptions and my syllabi below for your review.
