Teaching highlights

In the 22/23 semester I had the fantastic opportunity of working with Bradford City AFC to develop a future-focused assessment and marketing brief for my MAR6014 Digital Campaign Planning and Content Management module.The aim of the assessment was to provide insight into what marketing actually looks like outside of university context, while allowing students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of marketing theory in an exciting and relevant manner. Alongside collaborating on the assessment, the BCAFC team joined us in teaching the module to deliver a guest lecture that gave students direct insight into sports marketing and what a role in digital marketing entails. Upon the completion of the assignment, the top 5 students were given the opportunity to pitch their marketing plans to the BCAFC marketing team at the University of Bradford stadium, providing invaluable experience that many quoted to be "something they will never forget" and "the highlight of their time at the University of Bradford".
