Teaching

We cannot teach people anything. We can only help them discover it within themselves.” – Galileo Galilei

Teaching is what brought Colin to academia and it continues to both challenge and enlighten. His passion is evident in the classroom, where he currently teaches three classes.

The first is Foundations of Professional Sales. This course introduces students to the consultative sales process and assesses progress through two role play selling situations. These 'mock sells' provide real-world experience to undergraduates pursuing a career in professional sales or simply enter the work force and enhance their job interview skills.

The second is Sustainability Marketing. Bridging his research and teaching passions, this course gives students an edge in the marketplace by providing application-based learning across social, political, economic, environmental, and legal spheres within a business context. Check out this video detailing his class's projects at the Student Research & Creative Activity Expo.

The third is the Global Consulting Program preparation course. This spring semester class prepares students traveling in the GCP program over the summer. It involves a realistic consulting project as well as a language/culture portion that give OU students an edge not just in the summer program but on their resume as well. The picture below is Colin's send-off on May 2nd, 2017 as 123 students and 14 faculty set off for China, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, and Spain.

At the University of Alabama (2009-2013), Colin taught Consumer Behavior, Promotional Management, and International Marketing. He guest lectured for both Masters and MBA courses and also taught import/export management, international logistics, and global marketing.
