Susan Alexander, Online Graduate Certificate Student
For a college campus that is predominantly male and career oriented, the approach I chose for the upper-division class I teach tackles stereotypes of both genders. The graduate certificate I earned from WKU gave me lots of ammunition to use when dispelling firmly rooted beliefs, especially those in traditionally male-dominated fields of study. I've used a lot of techniques from the excellent faculty with whom I studied and stole some of their ideas for how to run an online class. Shattering Gender Stereotypes, in its 3rd or 4th version this semester, is totally online with an enrollment of 54 students. Thank you WKU.
