  • Do’s and don’ts when seeking publication
  • Emerging trends in the entrepreneurship field
  • Navigating the research process from conceptualization through execution
  • Tackling the revision and resubmittal process

March 11th, 2017: Pedagogy Day
An interactive day dedicated to entrepreneurship in the classroom looking at how educators can approach pedagogy in interesting ways. The day will involve sessions of heavy collaboration that will tentatively focus on:

  • Designing the entrepreneurship classroom of the future
  • Brainstorming unique experiential entrepreneurship activities
  • Examining and reinventing the entrepreneurship capstone
  • Constructing effective assessments and SLO’s

The goal of the conference is to unite California entrepreneurship educators, staff and thought leaders, facilitate sharing, and formulate new ideas that can be implemented on California university campuses and provide students the best possible entrepreneurship education and experiences. Join us for this powerful event and help affect the future of entrepreneurship education!
