Coaching Program for Entrepreneurship Educators

Winter/Spring 2022
VIRTUAL

Entrepreneurship education is about more than sharing knowledge with students—it’s also about the ability to teach in an innovative way and model an enterprising mindset.

The Babson Academy Coaching Program for Entrepreneurship Educators provides educators with an instructional design and delivery expert to work through ideas and challenges related to developing new materials and experimenting with novel modes of teaching.

Through six intensive coaching sessions over the course of a semester, you will work with an experienced instructional coach who will provide tailored instructional suggestions, information, and resources to increase your instructional skill set and confidence.

This remote, targeted instructional coaching program is offered in collaboration with Babson College MBA alumnus and experienced educational consultant and teacher, David James MBA’18, founder of Beacon Instructional Partners. Coaching is tailored to your level of experience to help you further advance the quality and effectiveness of your entrepreneurship instruction.

Upon completion of the program, you will have:

  • An improved instructor “tool kit” of experiential, action-based strategies and activities to teach entrepreneurship
  • A clearer philosophy of entrepreneurship instruction that speaks to your personality and context
  • An improved ability to reflect on instructional choices and a higher level of satisfaction, confidence, and ability teaching entrepreneurship
