Teaching

 

I have taught a variety of IS courses, although my major areas of teaching have been in the core IS management course, the telecommunications course at the Master’s level and PhD research seminars. At the Katz School of Business, University of Pittsburgh, I was the only doctoral student to be hired as a lecturer teaching 2 MBA courses/semester. Over 12 years at the Moore School of Business (MSB), I was consistently evaluated at the highest level in the college and was fortunate enough to receive a number of teaching awards from both students and faculty (including two-time receipt of the college-wide Alfred G. Smith Award for Teaching Excellence and two-time Outstanding MBA Professor Award). At MSB I spent significant time directing the curriculum, procedures, and standards for all IS programs. My particular interest at USC was toward creating a top notch PhD program in IS, which we successfully accomplished as reflected in the placement quality. At Clemson, I have been involved in program and curriculum development at the undergraduate, graduate and PhD levels. The doctoral program is successful based on the quality of students and the intensive standards for doctoral requirements, student success in consortia (like ICIS), student publications (ranked as #1 among 700 institutions in a CAIS article) and student placements. My teaching at Clemson has focused exclusively on graduate courses, including the core MBA (MSIM) and PhD course in IS, as well as research seminars in classical IS research, theory and research methods. I have received the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award twice at Clemson. My teaching evaluations for all courses across my career have consistently been high across the board (generally 4.6-5/5.0) and well above department averages.
