The big news: Wilson joins ECMM faculty

Free venti mocha caffé latte all day in the Café Canadien today! This is the big news I’ve been itching to tell everyone for some time now.

With convocation just completed, we have another convocation (calling together) to announce. Jay Wilson has just agreed to join our faculty in Educational Communications and Technology. Jay is no stranger to many of you, as he has taught almost every course we offer in the program. I’m so very pleased because Jay is a close friend, but also because he is a fabulous teacher and scholar. He is, quite simply, one of the most talented teachers I’ve ever met, and we’re ecstatic to have him join our team.

Welcome Jay… er… sorry… Professor Wilson!

Here is a picture and a brief description, for those few among you whom have not already experienced the Jay Wilson full meal deal.

  1. I was hoping this was the announcement you were holding back on. Congratulation, Jay. I don’t think there could be anyone better to fill this position. And congratulations to Rick and everyone else in the Ed Communication and Technology program for getting someone like Jay to be part of the team.

    And that skype thing during Alan November’s keynote – sweet!

  2. @courosa… we do indeed. We’re looking at a rare opportunity, I think. Thanks for the welcomes everyone. I know Jay will love hearing from you, and we’re just thrilled to have him join us. Now, if we could only make a package deal with the Posse! 🙂

  3. Hello gang

    Thanks for all of your kind words. I am looking forward to doing some damage with all of you in the near future.
