Teaching entrepreneurship

I am quite excited about my new function as Assistant Professor, Global Entrepreneurship at Carleton University – Sprott School of Business and teaching entrepreneurship courses using new pedagogical approaches.  In particular, I’ll be using the Startup Owner’s Manual from Blank and Dorf (2012) and the Business Model Generation text from Pigneur and Osterwalder (2010).  Several colleagues teaching at Sprott and elsewhere have adopted such approaches to teaching entrepreneurship and are quite enthusiastic about their early successes.  In addition, with all online resources available from Blank and others, it becomes a great opportunity to go with a blended learning approach.  At Sprott, we really believe in having students experience entrepreneurship rather than only learning about it.  Along with our ecosystem and support mechanisms, we are confident that we can help students develop their entrepreneurial minds.

I’ll report on our progress in future blogs!
