1 Hour Entrepreneurship Educator

Babson Academy Webinars

Entrepreneurship educators know that teaching entrepreneurship cannot be done one way only, or done alone. Changing learning environments, virtual classrooms, and continuous reinvention mean that community and collaboration are more important than ever. In this spirit, we are thrilled to introduce The One Hour Entrepreneurship Educator, a new monthly webinar series from Babson Academy.

You can expect actionable teaching tools, research-based insights, and peer-to-peer connections from Babson’s entrepreneurship educators. Tune in monthly for free, interactive discussions on topics ranging from how to channel the voice of James Earl Jones to speak so your online students will listen, to how to move experiential learning online. Webinars often include breakouts, giving you a chance to check in with entrepreneurship educators from around the world. Miss one of our webinars? They are all freely available here on our website.

We Are All Innovators Now
November 12, 2020, 9 A.M. EDT

Since COVID-19 hit the world, most of us have experienced dramatic changes in the way we work. Digitization has been with us for a generation, but only recently gathered the speed that allows redefinition and restructuring of work flows and entire process and value chains. In addition, the collaborative culture that has emerged over the past decade, partially driven by social media, enables completely new forms or collaboration and coordination of work. In this webinar, Babson College professor Sebastian Fixson will show the effects of these underlying forces on the nature of work, and the consequences for individuals, teams, and organizations. Today, the capability to innovate has become a key job skill for almost everyone. And, helping others to develop this capability is an important teaching skill.

Innovation as a discipline did not exist 20 years ago but today's employers and executives expect our students to be creative, entrepreneurial and innovative. The emergence and growth of this meta-discipline that cuts across multiple disciplines is a new phenomenon. Faculty must create new or reimagine their existing innovation curricula. Professor Jay Rao addresses the exciting discipline of innovation and how to create  new curricula and teaching methods for a wide array of audiences.

One of the most difficult challenges faced by entrepreneurship scholars is to navigate the process to publishing their work. This process includes many challenges, including framing and writing the paper, preparing the manuscript, revising and seeking feedback on the manuscript, identifying the journal outlet, submitting and managing the review process. Expert research authors, Professor Candida Brush and Professor William Gartner, address those challenges and provide three tips that are helpful in managing the process. They also provide an overview of the Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers. 2021 program dates to come.
