Talking Heads and Distance Learning Technology: The MSGL Hybrid Experience


A few weeks ago, MSGL Director, Stephanie Kiesel received an e-mail from Professor Charles Teplitz, who teaches Project Management for Global Business in the third semester of the program. Project Management for Global Business, in short, provides an integrative view of project management from the perspective of the project life cycle.  The course focuses on the five phases of project management related to the successful implementation of projects in both domestic and international environments: initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing. This course happens to be one of the more ‘experiential’ courses in the program due to the scope of both the hard and soft skills that are taught. With that being said, those students who are taking the Distance Learner route, will sometimes do what they can to attend class, even if they can’t physically be on campus.

Back to the e-mail…we know how unique our program is, but it’s nice to get a reminder from time to time showing just how unique we really are. And Professor Teplitz did just that by sending along a photo of Cohort 58 student, Johannes Schonberg, who was observing the class from Hawaii. With a little help from fellow student Chio Garza and her laptop, Johannes became a virtual member of the class.

Professor Teplitz stated that “after an in-class exercise in which student teams created Work Breakdown Structures on the white boards with Post-It Notes, Chio walked past the results carrying her laptop so Johannes could see what was accomplished. The Talking Head blew me away. A bit surreal!”
