Professor Anita Manders: My tenure at Bucks spans from a time when shorthand and typewriting were valuable tools in the business world… to word processing which was elaborate in its beginning stages, and then onward to computers -- to this day essential not only to the business world, but also to our educational process
In addition to teaching traditional face to face courses, I was one of the first faculty at Bucks to train in Distance Learning, now known as Virtual Campus/Online Learning, by attending trainings and workshops to understand the unique characteristics of this educational platform. Continual training in Quality Matters within our Online Learning Department helps to bring the optimum experience of this learning tool to our students.
Business Communication is one of my specialty courses where students are engaged in acquiring professional business language skills as well as document and report writing, all essential so that students can bridge the gap between their education and the business world they will soon venture into.
I have been a part time faculty member at Thomas Edison State College in Trenton, New Jersey in the School of Business. My specialty has been online Prior Learning Assessment courses including (but not limited to) Business Communication, Management and Office Applications.
As a member of both the National Business Education Association and the Pennsylvania Business Association, I continue to keep current with teaching trends and hold to the standards reflected in our ACBSP certification requirements.
I believe that advising is one of our most important responsibilities as college faculty, and I support our department’s steadfast commitment to advise our business majors throughout their term at Bucks. After many years, I still look forward to the beginning of each semester and am continually grateful to be a part of our unique business department and to the College as a whole.
