Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators: Teaching Online

To support educators in this virtual environment, we are very excited to offer a new ONLINE Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators program that will give you the tools you need to deliver online entrepreneurship education. The program will run from January 11-21, 2021 and will be a blend of self-paced and live virtual learning, including group work and peer to peer interactions. Like many of you, this year our faculty have pivoted to online teaching. They will share their pedagogical approaches to entrepreneurship education in hybrid and online environments.

How To Teach Entrepreneurship

Whether you are an academic professional or an entrepreneur who teaches, you'll find this immersive, intense symposium—that emphasizes how to teach is just as important as what you teach—to be a transformative experience.  Not only will you experience Babson's best practices and teaching methods, you'll learn a one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship framework, Babson's hallmark methodology, Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® (ET&A™). You'll enjoy the benefits of action-based learning as you're given the tools to enhance your teaching of one of the most powerful forces in the world for creating economic and social value. 

In this unique teaching entrepreneurship workshop, you'll learn from the preeminent leader in the field while collaborating with your esteemed peers. This is not only a great opportunity to reimagine how to teach, this is a perfect time to network with education professionals and form long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with other top-performing academics like yourself.
