What gives you the greatest satisfaction about teaching at WC? Helping students develop a “strategic story” approach to their time in college— linking their studies and endeavors, in and outside the classroom, to a career area they care about, and helping this story come alive through the choices they make about majors, minors, internships, travel, service, and their LinkedIn profile. What is your favorite class to teach, and why? BUS 302 Organizational Behavior. It’s a course about people working together— what goes wrong and how to get it right. Partly politics, partly sociology, partly psychology, partly anthropology, partly imagination. We read everything from the story of how Moses learned to delegate, to Henry Ford’s assembly line, to why Google reorganized into Oxygen and how Wikipedia works. Describe your approach to teaching. I took 18 students to visit London, Brussels, Antwerp, and Amsterdam to better understand and experience the global dimension of business. We explored European businesses, the role of the EU in shaping the legal and regulatory framework, and the impact of Brexit on business in Europe. We also saw theater and had a parkour lesson in London, ate chocolate and visited an EU session in Brussels, and went on a canal cruise and a country bike ride in the Netherlands.
