Applied Social Media Graduate Course at Tarleton State University - The Course Syllabus and Course Navigation Video

This semester, I am so excited about teaching the Applied Social Media course at Tarleton. To help others in their syllabus creation journey, I decided to embed my syllabus (and course navigation video) on the blog. :)

Adapting the Course from Undergraduate Students to Graduate Students
I taught this course at the undergraduate level and I always enjoyed helping the students on their research projects. Anytime that I can help students build their resume and also integrate their learning in high-impact educational practices (undergraduate research, etc.), I always strive to do so. Now, as I teach graduate students, research assignments have become more important because it seems that these students are searching for ways to help their resumes stand out from the rest of the applicants for positions.

Utilizing E-Books for Course Preparation and for Course Texts
This semester (to my surprise), I found the textbook for the course at our university's library, the Dick Smith Library as an e-book. This means that the students could potentially only have to purchase one book for the semester. Last semester, I utilized e-books to prepare for the Computer-Mediated Communication course and it was MUCH easier to bookmark key concepts and less cumbersome than dragging books from campus to the house.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to help!
