Session 1 Digital Marketing: Getting Started with Digital Marketing

Session 2 Digital Marketing: Creating Assignments and Integrating Industry Resources

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

8 am to 12 pm

Debra Zahay, Janna Parker, and Spencer Ross

With the growth of Internet use and e-commerce in a global economy, the need for digital marketing to be incorporated into the 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 of this workshop will be provided with resources that will assist in developing digital marketing curriculum as well as suggestions on 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 that can be used to show professional development for accreditation purposes.


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.


Session 2 Digital Marketing: Creating Assignments and Integrating Industry Resources:

This session focuses on specific course content for digital courses. 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.
