Developing Great Entrepreneurship Educators --- Experiential Classroom at Notre Dame

  • 1.  Developing Great Entrepreneurship Educators --- Experiential Classroom at Notre Dame

    Posted 29 days ago

    Entrepreneurship education is unique both in what is taught and how it is taught.  As demand for entrepreneurship courses continues to grow, many universities are experiencing difficulties both in staffing courses and ensuring the quality, rigor, and substance of these courses.  Academic areas from both inside and outside the business school struggle with these issues. But how do faculty members learn the latest tools and approaches being employed by leading educators?

    The Experiential Classroom is a clinic that seeks to address these needs. The clinic is in its 21st year and is dedicated to sharing leading-edge teaching practices and enhancing teaching skills. More than 1400 faculty members from around the globe have attended over the past 20 years.

    The Experiential Classroom XXI will be offered in-person at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend from September 23-26, 2021. The clinic is taught over an intensive three-day period, and is delivered by twenty-three of the top entrepreneurship educators in the world. It is a content rich program, and introduces a number of highly effective, state-of-the-art approaches to the teaching of entrepreneurship and building of entrepreneurship programs. Its success is tied to a commitment to an experiential approach both in its subject matter and innovative delivery methods.

    Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, and is limited to seventy-five delegates. The program is co-sponsored by the University of Tampa, University of Florida and USASBE, and a number of USASBE partial scholarships are available.  To apply go to  http://www.ut.edu/entrepreneurcenter/experiential/.  For more information, contact Michael Morris at 574-631-9880 or mmorri24@nd.edu.
