The semester is done. The grades are in.
It is time to reflect on the semester – what went well, what challenges we faced, what we learned, and what we plan to do to improve for next semester.
This evening I had the opportunity to talk about just that on a Google+ Hangout with social media / marketing professor Jeremy Floyd (@jfloyd). Jeremy teaches social media at the undergraduate and MBA level at University of Tennessee Chattanooga. He is also president at BlueGill Creative and brings with him a great deal of business experience into the classroom (more about Jeremy).
In the broadcast, Jeremy shares a ton of great insight about his teaching experiences, his goals, unanticipated surprises in the classroom, and his thoughts on how digital tools and the changing information landscape may impact education.
I learn a great deal from Jeremy every time we talk and truly appreciate his sharing his passion for, and knowledge of, social media and digital. I particularly enjoyed our discussion on grades and assignments, and how grades can get in the way of education, as well as hearing how Jeremy uses Google Plus hangouts as a digital classroom, and how he’s integrated Twitter chats (he also has an overview blog post about it).
I highly recommend Jeremy’s blog JeremyFloyd.com if you aren’t currently subscribed.
This is the second Google+ Hangout broadcast from our LinkedIn group – Teaching Social Media Marketing and Management.
Watch the first broadcast on Social Media Measurement.
