“I knew my fourth career in 1984 was to be my most impressive when I was called to Gibson Hall for an 8:30 a.m. interview and found Dean Marksbury vacuuming the carpet in the lobby. I asked ‘Need anyone to do windows?’ I was hired shortly thereafter, beginning a 20-year dedication to counseling and teaching at Tulane."
examples of innovation and challenge
Danny Killeen, who established one of the first computer and information systems courses in the mid-1960s, when programs were run “on the good old IBM 7044” and a single computer filled an entire room.
Nick Genovese, who has taught accounting at SCS/UC since 1983 and has won many teaching awards for his distinctive classroom approach – “I go back to the classroom semester after semester because it gives me the opportunity to do it better the next time,” he says.
Kay McLennan helped to develop the platform on which online classes are offered. "Online learning supports the School of Continuing Studies' mission to make higher education available in the communities we serve," she points out. "Students are able to overcome time and place constraints, learn at peak times of day and at their own pace, focus on the specific course content that is the most difficult or interesting, and even have more contact with the instructor and classmates, since the course site discussion boards are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
