It’s been a hectic and information-filled week as over 400 educators converged for the 2018 Gulf Regional Innovative Teaching Conference in Baldwin County, Alabama. Over the course of the conference, Rocky conducted six breakout hours for area educators.
“So, You Want to Get Published?” was geared toward aspiring authors. Rocky discussed the different routes to publishing in today’s market, how to establish a writing habit, and what authors can expect to face once their work is in print or cyberspace. Marketing a product and branding through social media were also topics during the jam-packed hour.
“Shift Happens: 7 Habits Turbo Booster” was a tongue-in-cheek recap of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and its application in pedagogy, rapport, and practice. Imbibed with humorous puns and quips from Rocky’s classroom experience, this presentation was as much fun as it was motivational and informative.
