Approach to teaching

Teaching involves less the delivery of material than the understanding of how people learn.  Two critical student attitudes towards learning make a real difference.  These can be thought of as the answers to two questions:  Is the material of practical value to the learner personally?  Is the material something that the learner is likely to be able to grasp given the help and tools available?  Over 20 years of college and technical instruction provides tools to effectively engage learners.

"William is a role model for the kids of interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary and collaborative work that are the hallmarks of fine pedagogical and scholarly work. While we are in different colleges within our university, William and I had an easy time of finding common ground and shared vocabulary to work together on innovative projects. William is well-spoken, diligent and creative and a team player. He will quickly find his place wherever he works."

"I have worked with Bill Colucci for several years now in various programs and on various projects. It has always been a treat to work with him: he is very professional, timely, open to new ideas, and follows through on all parts of our joint projects. He's a great listener and thinker and has taken the initiative in coming up with solutions to any challenges that come along; in the classroom or as part of a large state university. I highly recommend him."

"Dr. William Colucci is a professor of Spreadsheet Modeling at the School of Business; his courses are taught both in-person and online. He has done a terrific job on online learning methods and continues to strive to better teach his students. I would highly recommend Dr. Colucci, I have complete faith that he will continue to provide positive contribution to any school and department. "

To Whom it may concern:

"I am writing this letter showing my support of Dr. William Colucci for a faculty position and to summarize my experience with Bill.  We have known each other for approximately four years and had worked together for one and a half years at Montclair State University’s Feliciano School of Business. As part of any faculty team, Bill would offer extensive training and development skills to draw on.    For example, Dr. Colucci’s created a course design which was linked to each chapter.  Students were tasked with taking any element of the chapter that they found interesting and finding an article, video, etc. which related to that chapter.  They were required to write a brief response to three questions and were tasked with presenting these in class.  This course design achieves the following: ·       Provides extensive exposure to good communication, practice interpreting, and evaluating, and articulating views in public dialogue ·       Enhances business communication skills, both written and oral.
·       Use of current articles provides a sense of the relevance of course material and the value of learning. 
·       The limited task of interpreting and engaging articles provides a challenge that can earn students a sense of accomplishment that can build confidence and a feeling of self-efficacy in learning  

These benefits have actually been articulated by students as they formally comment on course quality.  Bill is an intelligent and hard-working team player. In addition, he is an accomplished speaker and, as a teacher, goes the extra step to deliver his expertise to his students. Your organization would find Dr. William Colucci a stellar asset."

Computer technical services recommendations

"I had the pleasure of working with William on many CRM projects which involved complicated Network Setups. I always found William a pleasure to work with and admired his work."
Michael Stoler
Senior Consultant

"Bill is a tremendously talented Network Administrator and made significant contributions while individually overseeing a 50-user Microsoft network during the 3 years I managed him directly at Media Bay. Bill handled everything from hardware procurement and software installations to performance optimization and help desk support. Bill developed strong working relationships with everyone in the company, including the entire executive team, and always delivered great results with a smile. Bill demonstrated good judgment in balancing multiple priorities and was extraordinarily self-motivated to continually improve his network skillset. Bill is a very reliable asset and solid contributor on any team!"

Michael Bloom
CEO of Chief Marketing Solutions

"Yes, Bill is a tremendous network administrator, but what sets him apart is his ability to connect with and understand his "clients". The art of listening is often a lost art form, but Bill truly listens to his "clients" to truly understand the need or want. This has allowed Bill to solve, correct and/oror address this issue at hand the first time around. This skillset has done him well as he has moved into the academic field. Bill listens to not only his students, but also to what the marketplace tells him he needs to teach to his students. Any student coming out of Bill's classroom will be ready to apply his/her learnings on day one because of Bill's insight to the marketplace's demands and what his students are looking to add to their own skillsets. If I was ever going back to school again, I would seek out and enroll in Bill's classes. So, if you need an experience network administrator or a college professor teaching computer science, look no further than Bill. He will exceed any expectations - by a mile. "

 “Prompt, courteous service and the ability to work across platforms.  No need to learn computer-ese – Bill will take your vernacular complaints will understand what needs to be done.”
