Janna Parker, Debra Zahay, and Kevin James

With the growth of Internet use and ecommerce in a global economy, the need for digital marketing to be incorporated into marketing curriculum has become increasingly important in producing graduates who are ready to enter the workforce. Designing courses that incorporate technology and trends can be a daunting task for those getting started. Attendees will be provided with resources that will assist in developing digital marketing curriculum as well as suggestions for creating syllabi and assignments. A digital course pack that includes sample syllabi, assignments, and rubrics will be given to registered attendees. Registered attendees will complete a short online quiz after attending the sessions. After passing the quiz, attendees will be given a certificate of completion signifying a professional achievement.

Session 1 Digital Marketing: Getting Started with Digital Marketing

This session focuses on the broad curriculum decisions that departments must address. Depending on the resources available and the mission of the department, methods for integrating digital marketing will vary. Curriculum design at all levels will be addressed including: 1) creating a minor in digital, 2) designing an overview course, and 3) incorporating digital marketing into existing courses.

Session 2 Digital Marketing: Creating Assignments and Integrating Industry Resources

This session focuses on specific course content for digital courses to include website design, SEO/PPC, and social media. Instructors have a wide variety of options to include industry certifications, software, and analytics. The presenters will provide examples of assignments they have used that incorporate these tools into their course design.
