Never thought I’d say this, but I’m about to become an instructor. Yep, I’m returning to my alma mater to teach people how they can become a Food Blogger on Social Media. Wichita State University has been offering Community Education classes for quite some time. These classes are open to everyone in the community, and they do not count for college credit.
The classes are designed to help learning be fun and cover things that directly interest you. They have classes that cover food & drink, business and technology, language learning, hobbies & leisure, arts, health & wellness and more. Check out all the classes offered here.
One of those classes will be taught by yours truly and it may or may not help. After all, the last time I taught anybody anything was when I coached a seventh grade basketball team. The team finished last in the league, so my background isn’t exactly star-studded.
But I’m going to give it my best shot, and will try to make the class as interactive, engaging and fun as possible.
The class, where you can sign up here, will be run on Mondays from September 12-26. Here’s the class description:
Do you have a passion for food? Do you enjoy writing or posting on social media? What if you could combine those two things into one? Join local food blogger, Wichita by E.B., for an up-close look at how you can use social media platforms to create your very own food blog. This 3-week course will teach you the basics of food blogging, how to set up an account, creating engaging content, and tips that he has learned over his 10+ years as a blogger. The final session will take place at a restaurant where you put everything you learned into action. A finals where you get to eat and take pictures? That’s right! By the end of the class, you’ll have your very own food blog. Be sure to sign up quickly, the class is limited to 40 participants.
Basically two classes will be in the classroom where we discuss food blogging, help you get an account set up, go through the basics along with tips and tricks and the finals will be all of us grabbing dinner somewhere and putting what we learned into action.
After three weeks, you’ll have your own food blog on social media and at least one follower; me.
I’m not quite sure what to expect, as this whole teaching thing will be quite new to me. Fun fact though; when I was in junior high, I always wanted to become a teacher. Now here’s my chance.
The registration fee for the class is $59 and covers the three Mondays. Everybody will be on their own for dinner. I’ll be looking for a space that accommodates the entire class. I’m a firm believer, The best meals are always in big groups.
Space is limited to I believe 30-40 people, so get in while you can. Hope to see you all there!
