Entrepreneurial Learning Environments: Why Building an Entrepreneurial Culture On Your Campus Is the Key to Student and Staff Engagement
During this webinar, participants learn strategies and best practices to foster entrepreneurial mindsets on college campuses. Success in college starts with student engagement in the learning process. However, many initiatives to improve student retention and completion miss the mark. How do we promote the circumstances necessary to produce innovative and resilient students? The answer: An entrepreneurial culture shift on college campuses. Entrepreneurial learning environments prepare students for the challenges of college and life after college by fostering communication, collaboration, and creativity through experiential learning. By cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in students, faculty, and staff, we empower and engage everyone to solve problems, think critically, and be engaged in their work. When shifting entrepreneurial thinking to the core of our educational structures, faculty, students, and communities benefit. An entrepreneurial learning environment enables educators to provide their students with a path to better understand, analyze, and change the world around them, for the betterment of all.
