Lecturer in Marketing at Cass Business School
In this role, I was responsible for for 50-75 first year or upper year undergraduate students living in Residence each semester. I managed operational tasks like roommate agreements, rules and discipline, suite/room inspections and health and safety. I also served as a focal point for student questions, support, and referral to University and student services. Most importantly, I developed community in Residence and supported the success and education of an amazing group of students.
I provided support to Organizational Psychologists completing employee assessments for both selection and leadership development. This included coordinating the candidate's assessment overall, administering and scoring psychometric instruments, and participating in and providing feedback on simulations.
As a postdoctoral research fellow ("postdoc"), my principal role is to produce quality research that furthers my program of research and the scholarly mission of the Alberta School of Business.
This research program focuses on prosocial consumer behaviors - those behaviors that either benefit others substantially (e.g., charitable contributions of time or money), or to a lesser degree (e.g., ethical consumption such as fair trade). I also investigate the role of topics such as time and money, fairness and justice in decision-making, motivators (and demotivators), and social media in prosocial consumer behavior.
My fellowship is under the supervision of Dr. Jennifer Argo and is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
As a PhD candidate, my principal role was to complete my doctoral education while also furthering the scholarly mission of the Haskayne School of Business by producing high quality academic research in Marketing and Consumer Behavior. Toward this end, I published in a number of quality academic journals including the Journal of Marketing and the Journal of Marketing Research.
As an Instructor, I taught undergraduate Marketing and HR courses to the fantastic undergraduates at the Haskayne School of Business. I brought non-profit organizations in to the classroom, and students wrote their term paper on a real challenge these organizations faced, giving students firsthand experience and providing valuable information for non-profits. In this role, I was proud to support development of community in the classroom and positive learning outcomes for students, while we also contributing to organizations that make a difference.
In this role, I took an idea and made it in to a reality. Working with creative, print and operations directors, we took a concept through strategy development, compiling a team, creating our prototype product, and signing our first clients. We effectively delivered results on an ambitious timeline.
In this role I had two sub-roles: one within statistics and research methods, and another in organizational psychology. On the statistics/methods side, I developed a lab curriculum and assignments, which I delivered, graded, and mentored upper year students through. On the organizational psychology side, I developed and delivered a new seminar-style course to upper year undergraduates.
In this role I provided teaching support to faculty in the Department of Psychology. In some cases, I developed a lab curriculum/syllabus along with assignments, and in other cases I administered a pre-designed curriculum. All courses required delivering a lesson, assignments, grading and providing feedback on coursework, holding office hours, and working closely with undergraduate students toward their successful completion of the course.
