A Q&A with Greg Price, Associate Program Director, Master of Arts in Leadership
Q: What is your terminal degree in and where did you get it from?
A: I’m presently attending CityU for my Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership (estimated completion: 2015).
Q: What do you do for fun?
A: I enjoy skiing, fishing, home construction projects, movies, cooking, and travel. However, these past three years my enjoyment has been limited to reading and writing.
Q: What classes do you teach?
A: I have instructed courses in Marketing, Communications and Leadership at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Q: Why did you decide to start teaching?
A: I got my start teaching in Japan and found I enjoyed it. Although, I didn’t really know how much I did enjoy it until about 14 years later, after my return to the states again.
Q: Why do you enjoy teaching at CityU?
A: There is a passion at CityU that is infectious. Staff employ the continuous improvement model and the drive to be the best we can be makes not only teaching, but learning fun.
Q: What is one thing that you always tell your students that may or may not relate to your class?
A: I reach students at their level. I understand their background, their method of learning and their way of receiving feedback. I then communicate to the broad range of student levels and abilities and help each develop an appreciation for the content being learned.
Q: Any fond CityU memories that you can share?
A: This was an “Aha” moment. I run a business, and was for years trying to change the way the other (majority) owner would conduct business. A student in one of my doctorate classes said to me, “why try to change someone else, change yourself and see how that will change the outcome you are looking for.” I’m two years into that strategy, and it works great.
Q: What might you tell a student who was thinking of taking one of your classes?
A: Please do, I would love to learn what you know about the content being taught. Essentially, everyone has something to share and everyone has something to learn.
Q: What is something that you have learned from end-of-course evaluations that you applied later on?
A: Engage students through many avenues of communication and apply technological solutions to support the learning environment.
