Half Day Offerings- 2

Kelly Shaver: "Modeling the “Lean Startup": Experimentation in Entrepreneurship Education"

Justin Wilcox: "Teaching without a Textbook"  Learn techniques to engage your entire entrepreneurship class by replacing lectures, and textbooks, with experiential exercises. Discover the key to assessing students, and how to set their expectations, in a non-traditional academic environment. Plus you'll leave the session with at least three new hands-on exercises you can integrate into your course this semester.


Facilitators: Patti Greene (Babson College), Heidi Neck (Babson College), Moraima De Hoyos Ruperto (Univ. of Puerto Rico), Eric Liguori (Rowan Univ.) & Christoph Winkler (Iona College) "Designing the Future of Entrepreneurship Education"

This session is for anyone with a bias to action to help design the future of entrepreneurship education. Your input and personal experiences as scholars, teachers and practitioners will be essential to help us accomplish our goals. In detail, we are going to apply a design thinking process, to (1) map our entrepreneurship education ecosystem through expert input and personal stories, (2) identify the key actors and their needs within that ecosystem, (3) convert these needs into opportunities, and (4) frame the most important research questions that we need to answer to advance our field through actionable research. Process and outcomes of this session will be translated into a call to action for our community as part of a paper that we are planning to publish following the USASBE Conference.
