Deadline for All Submissions:  October 4, 2020



 

Research Tracks

 

Competitive Research Papers Track is designed for researchers who have completed theoretical and empirical manuscripts focusing on various entrepreneurship-related topics. 

In addition to presenting their findings, we ask that during the presentation, scholars discuss how the findings inform the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship.  The format will be pre-recorded Videos + Live Q&A

 

 

Emerging Research Paper Track is for researchers who are at the early stages of a research project. 


Presenters of accepted submissions in this category will need to prepare an engaging 3-minute video pitch on a research proposal rather than a complete manuscript. Presenters should cover a summary of their proposed research question, theoretical framework, methodology, and potential impacts of their work on entrepreneurship research and education.   The format will be facilitated, creative cohorts working throughout January + virtual exposition at the end of the month.

 

Teaching Tracks

 


Competitive Experiential Exercises Track is designed for educators to demonstrate their most impactful classroom exercises. 

The objective is to showcase those who are teaching entrepreneurship by doing, and doing so to create a community within USASBE where we can share the varying types of classroom experiences that bring learning to life. 

Accepted sessions in this track will need to submit either a 10-15 minute pre-recorded video demonstration OR be prepared to run a live demonstration with your audience. Initial submission proposals require a video upload of a two-minute (maximum) pitch of your submission. We are looking for the topic, desired impact, and other information of interest. 

 

Teaching Cases, Modules and Courses Track is for attendees to present innovative cases on entrepreneurial companies, teaching modules addressing a particular challenge or dilemma, or other pedagogical innovations. 

Submissions will ideally challenge both business or non-business students. Submissions can be “mini” or “traditional” in length, but a detailed teaching note must be submitted in addition to the case.

Initial submissions require a video upload of a two-minute (maximum) pitch of your submission. We are looking for the topic, desired impact, and other information of interest. Accepted submissions will be required to upload a 5-10 minute video of the topic in December 2020, and then be prepared for an in-person Q&A during the USASBE 2021 event between January 5-8, 2021.

 

Emerging Experiential Exercises Track is for educators who have an emerging idea, tool or approach to enable more experiential learning. 

Submissions require a video upload of a two-minute (maximum) pitch of your submission. We are looking for the topic, desired impact, and other information of interest. The format will be facilitated, creative cohorts working throughout January + virtual exposition at the end of the month.

 

Programming Tracks

 

 

Competitive Programming Exposé Track is designed for those running various programming initiatives at all levels (e.g., those running entrepreneurship centers, incubators, accelerators, non-degree programs, student organizations, makerspaces, and SME training programs). 


The objective is to share best practice in curricular and co-curricular program creation, building, and management. Programs submitting to this track should have a track-record in order to show measurable outcomes, achievements, lessons learned, and influence and impact on entrepreneurship education. Submissions require a video upload of a two-minute (maximum) pitch of your submission. We are looking for the topic, desired impact, and other information of interest. 

Those accepted in the Competitive Programming Exposé should anticipate presenting during the January 5-8 event for no more than 20 minutes of time. Presentations will be 20 minutes.  You are **strongly** encouraged to pre-record a 5-10 minute informational video of your content to be uploaded to the online platform, and then be prepared to be live with Q&A for the balance of the time. 

 

Emerging Programming Challenges & Charrettes is for presenters to leverage audience members to resolve conflicts and challenges related to entrepreneurship education programming. 

Presenters submitting for this track are essentially bringing a challenge to the event rather than a “solution”. Presenters should be prepared to provide a summary of the problem, and also be prepared to receive feedback on possible solutions or frameworks. Submissions require a video upload of a two-minute (maximum) pitch of your submission. We are looking for the topic, desired impact, and other information of interest. Additional follow-up conversations and collaborations will develop around the ideas throughout the month of January 2021.

The format will be facilitated, creative cohorts working throughout January + virtual exposition at the end of the month.

 

 

 

Virtual Workshops, Learning Journeys, and Case Studies

 

 

Virtual workshops will be held around the anticipated conference dates and are in conjunction with USASBE 2021.  Virtual workshops cover a specific topic and are intended for participants to do a 2-4 hour deep dive into developing new knowledge, skills, competencies or experiences.  Preference will be given to programs that creatively model effective online engagement.  

Submissions should specifically outline the learning objectives participants can expect to gain from the workshop.

Virtual workshops will be an extra fee for USASBE 2021 participants, and the proposal may be made to deliver the Virtual Workshop anytime between December 15, 2020 - January 31, 2021.

 

 

Virtual Learning Journeys are designed to be an exposition into a location with a rich entrepreneurship ecosystem.  Submissions will be journeys into meeting new entrepreneurs and their businesses within a geographic area.  There may be a focus on their stories and how their businesses have been impacted by Covid-19, the Black Lives Matter Movement, or other developments within a particular ecosystem. 

Virtual Learning Journeys should be proposed to be held throughout January 2021.

 

 

Virtual Case Studies will focus on providing supplemental contextual information on new or existing **teaching case studies**. Developing deep knowledge of cases, perspectives and experiences is the desired outcomes from these planned virtual experiences.  Preference will be given to programs that creatively model effective online engagement.

Examples of activities that could be included in Virtual Case Studies include: video tours of case sites, interviews or engagement with subjects of case studies, interviews or engagement with customers, stakeholders, etc.

Virtual Case Studies will be an extra fee for participants, and may be scheduled anytime during  January 2021.
