64 entrepreneurs and educators participated in the Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators (SEE) at Babson, May 28 – June 1.
 
SEE is an intensive four-day program where participants:

  • explore the entrepreneurship method, the “art and craft” of teaching and learning entrepreneurship,
  • are introduced to Entrepreneurial Thought and Action®, and
  • experience cutting-edge teaching methods for today’s environment.
During the program, participants explored the entrepreneurial process and the “art and craft” of teaching and learning entrepreneurship. The program provides an introduction to case method teaching and live, venture-based teaching methodologies.  At the heart of the Price-Babson SEE is a belief that teaching effectiveness can be learned and must forever improve and a goal of building an international cadre of educators who understand the importance of combining entrepreneurship theory and practice in teaching.
Program participants came from 13 countries including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, Ecuador, Germany, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States, for this just-completed program.
Cross-disciplinary educators and entrepreneurs from around the world are invited to attend Price-Babson SEE. The program, offered twice a year on campus and limited to 60 participants in each session, is designed for academics or entrepreneurs from any discipline who teach or have a desire to teach entrepreneurship. Participants are encouraged to register as a team of one academic and one entrepreneur or a team of two academics. Participants also may register individually. Babson encourages the academic-entrepreneur team because the intersection of theory and practice enhances the education experience of the students we teach.
