Carolyn T. Mitchell

Senior Lecturer in Advertising

UT El Paso

My teaching philosophy is simple: Learn by Doing. I am fortunate that I am in a discipline where practical applications are not only important but fundamental to the curriculum. In the advertising field, hands-on, finished projects bear extreme importance. As a result of my project styled classes, I have found that my students have a level of confidence that comes as a result of hard work, of losing an advertising competition but being satisfied with the process of competing, and from doing all that it takes to win the attention of both the potential consumer, the national advertiser and ultimately the prospective employer.
