Dr. Drakopoulou believes online education is more student-centered than traditional brick-and-mortar education. “As a facilitator of online courses rather than a lecturer, my role is to select and filter information for student consideration and facilitate thought-provoking discussions. I like sharing professional experiences and real-world examples to enhance students learning and prepare them for entering the business world.”
