Creating Your Intro Video

Since you won’t be meeting the students in-person, we wanted to create an opportunity for them to get to know a little about you.  We are asking each faculty member to create a short video with the following information…

  • Introduce yourself
  • Background (professional and personal)
  • Your history with the VBA Bank School
  • About your class
  • How your class fits into the entire curriculum (VBA will cover the pyramid)
  • Your individual class norms
  • Anything else you want to share….

Be enthusiastic & have fun!  The VBA is so fortunate that we have such an incredible faculty at Bank School and we want the students to see the value and expertise each of you bring to the table.
