KALAMAZOO, —Dr. Scott Cowley, associate professor of marketing and director of the digital marketing and eCommerce program at Western Michigan University, won the 2022 Marketing Management Association’s Master Teaching Competition, which recognizes the organization’s outstanding marketing educator of the year. Competition finalists presented their portfolio and teaching impact to judges at the organization’s Fall Educators Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
“This award is really special to me, since I have a lot of respect for the past winners who have inspired my own approaches to education,” says Cowley. “I’ve always wanted to be a professor who brings their best work to the classroom so that students can do their best work. And it’s really the innovative mindset and achievements of my students that shined through in what I presented. I’m lucky to have a role in what they do.”
Cowley’s winning presentation focused, in part, on his approach to providing hands-on experiences in digital marketing that prepare students for their careers. In fact, Cowley highlighted how he uses R.E.A.L. projects—an acronym that guides his approach in the classroom.
