“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 is excited to teach Advanced Personal Selling at Auburn University! He won the departmental teaching award in 2023 and looks forward to improving his teaching every year!
Previously he taught four classes:
1. Foundations of Professional Sales
2. Sustainability & Marketing
3. Global Consulting Prep
4. International Consulting
Regardless of the course, Colin's goal in the classroom is simple: help students get jobs and start their careers. This goal varies in implementation across the courses, but it involves making the classroom interactive, individual, and always striving to improve.
Before moving Auburn or Ohio , Colin earned his teaching stripes at the University of Alabama (2009-2013). While with the Crimson Tide, 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.
