Dr. Dominik Mischkowski was featured across social media as part of the eCampus Spotlight Sunday series.

Mischkowski, a visiting assistant professor of psychology in the Ohio University College of Arts & Sciences, teaches PSY 2120 Research Methods in Psychology for eCampus.

Spotlight Sunday asked him a few questions so students could get to know him a little better, including what his hidden talent is.

“One hidden talent? I have at least two!” Mischkowski replied. “For once, I am totally into art. My farther is an artist, and I painted myself quite a lot when I was a teenager. Also, I can easily give you an overview of French impressionism or German expressionism. I love talking art, composition, and painting techniques. I think aesthetic expression is what makes life worth living.

“Also, I love to dance. As a graduate student at Ohio State University, I was member of the University’s competitive ballroom dancing club. I went to competitions with my partner, and we even placed. My favorite classic dance is the Waltz. It is a hard style, because body posture and steps are quite difficult. But it looks amazing when a couple dances it well.”

Mischkowski says his favorite thing about being an eCampus instructor “is the flexibility that comes along with online teaching. Besides teaching, I have many commitments, and I travel often. As an eCampus instructor, I can connect with my students where ever I am in the world. One week, I can be in San Diego, the other week, I can be in Washington, D.C. For teaching my eCampus students, my location does not matter.”
