Dr. Hodis has been a member of the Fisher faculty since 2009. She currently teaches Personal Selling (MKTG 344) and International Marketing (MKTG 414), and in the past has taught Principles of Marketing (MKTG 221) and International Business Management (MGMT 312). Dr. Hodis is the founder and advisor of the St. John Fisher College Collegiate Chapter of the American Marketing Association.
Her overall teaching approach is based on two guiding principles: actively engaging students in the learning process via experiential learning opportunities or active learning tools, and prioritizing the application rather than the memorization of knowledge. She focuses on helping students build essential skills, such as critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Dr. Hodis participates in the service-learning program at Fisher by requiring Introduction to Marketing students to write and present comprehensive marketing plans for local businesses in need.
Dr. Hodis is an active researcher interested in digital marketing, online consumer behavior, and branding. Her current focus is social media marketing. Two of her studies on social media are listed as Harvard Business Review cases. Her work has been presented at top national and international marketing conferences and published in major academic journals such as the American Journal of Business, Business Horizons, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science (2014 Best Article Award), Journal of International Management, Journal of Marketing Management, MIT Sloan Management Review.
