Dr. Derrill Watson

Dr. Watson is one of the most passionate professors teaching students at Tarleton State University. He interacts with his students while teaching his classes, which entail Economics and Trade for the College of Business Administration. Teaching is something Dr. Watson strives to succeed at every day, he said, “ My favorite moment is when the light comes on and they get it.” He engages students with interaction and discussion among peers. If you ask him about his unique teaching style, he often replies, “We create our own notes in class during discussion. It isn’t what am I going to do today, it’s what are they going to do”. Dr. Watson is also able to assist other professors to do the same in their own classes. As a Faculty Fellow, he helps interested faculty by showing them ways to create a course where students are not just sitting through a lecture but engaging. He has enjoyed working with Tarleton professors. The College of Business Administration recently renewed his two-year contract as a member of the Faculty Fellows. Along with his renewal, he was recently awarded the Engaged Faculty Award for all of his involvement on campus and with fellow professors.
