Marketing your classes

I’ve learned a lot in the past three years about everything a teacher has to do that isn’t teaching. One of those things is marketing/selling a new course. Last year I didn’t market my design courses enough so I ended up with not enough students in them. Consequently I am teaching life science this year in addition to 3 design classes (I love biology, but most of the these students don’t want to be there; so you can imagine how much fun that is for a teacher.)

This year I’ve been doing design favors for the teacher who is in charge of T-shirt and banner printing. In exchange for a couple of T-shirt designs I did for him, he’s going to let me print a number of full-color banners on laminated paper.

I’m going to have him print up two of these 4-foot banners (click for larger image):
