Search Engine Optimization in Italian University
Teaching has always been my passion. I enjoy a class of people and sharing my knowledge with them. It is a challenge to get across something you know in a timely and very simple way.
I have a class of young students at the Accademia di Belle Arti di L’Aquila where I am a contract professor and I teach web technology to artists. I don’t think there is anything more difficult than teaching computer technology to artists.
About a few months ago I was contacted by the University of Florence. They asked me if I would be interested in teaching search engines in a masters course called Multimedia Content Design. For the first time search engine technology and web marketing enter Italian University. It’s a pleasure and an honour to take part in such a high level course.
Of course I was very pleased by the invitation. I am an outsider with no contacts in the academic environment so the invitation was a big surprise. After the preliminary chat I couldn’t resist asking the question I had on the tip of my tongue: Why me ?
The answer was surprising: They were following a number of potential candidates on their blogs and monitored blogging – both quality and style before choosing someone – that felt really good …
I’ll be teaching a module within the Master on search engines and web marketing.
As teaching is so important to me I have decided to open a category related to search engines and web marketing. I am planning a series of seminars for 2007.
- What do you think about search engine seminars ?
- Have you attended any such events ?
- What has your experience been ?
- Have they been up to your expectations ?
