”Sometimes students are surprised to hear about the challenges they will face. I try to illuminate these issues and help students see how they can bridge the gap as the sports managers of the future. To me, good teaching is stating objectives, teaching to them, and then assessing accordingly. When I do that effectively, students tend to do well.”
