Greetings from North Carolina

Hi Everyone,

This is my first MOOC.  I am currently working on my PhD in Geography (Urban Planning & Economic Development) at the University of North Carolina - Greensboro, NC.  I am participating in the Preparing Future Leaders/Faculty program, and this course will help me begin to understand the ins and outs of eventually being a professor.  My current job involves providing continuing education and training adults in a large corporate banking setting.  I'm looking forward to building a network of friends and developing my own teaching philosophy and style.

P.S. I would love to know how I can add a picture to my profile.

Greetings from just down the road in Raleigh, North Carolina, Sakika!

We may be the only two from North Carolina in FLST13 or do you have others in your Preparing Future Leaders/Faculty program who are joining you?

I think you came to the right place to build a network and develop your teaching philosophy and style.
