Clay Bandy

Instructor in Information Technology
Department:

Education:

MSU- Bachelors in IT
Regis University- Masters in MIS
Nova Southeastern University- ABD in MIS

Experience:

I started working in IT back when it was called Data Processing. And while not always working in the field I was always interested in it and kept up with the changes. Upon completing my Masters I started teaching at my alma mater of MSU part-time. SInce that start in teaching I have taught at several colleges and universities, enjoying the culture at CHU the most.

Philosophy:

My teaching challenge is to learn what the students do not know and then show them how to learn that themselves. A secondary and auxiliary challenge is to find an area of IT that the student will get excited about and introduce them to that.

Personal Interests:

I enjoy building- whether it is a hi-tech MIS made with hi-tech tools or a canoe or chicken coop made with millennial old tools and materials. And not surprisingly there are many similarities in techniques, tactics, a outcomes, and approaches between the old and new

International Experience:

My wife and I love to travel and have had that opportunity, being in 6 continents and multiple countries. We strive for the “local experience” and feel we are having a good trip when we are in places where tourists do not usually go.One great experience was being with a group in South Africa and not understanding a word of the Zulu, and a few there not understanding any English. Yet being able to communicate and one person speaking to me in Spanish.
