Interactive Webinar: Looking into Entrepreneurship Education, through the Lens of Multi-media Storytelling

Date: 
Tuesday, 13 April, 2021 - 13:00
 

The Session

Entrepreneurship education is beyond helping students to start their own business. In face of the uncertain future, it is of critical importance to encourage our students to be entrepreneurial: proactive, resilient, agile, diligent and curious. To us, the most important startup is YOU.

Co-hosted by the Center for Education Innovation and Professor Erwin Huang, an interactive webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 13, 13:00 - 14:00. In this webinar, we will:

  • Discuss the use of multi-media storytelling in entrepreneurship education and how to "teach" entrepreneurial mindset.
  • Launch the online resource hub - ENTR U
  • Collect feedback on how to shape the future of entrepreneurship education
  • Invite university members to join the ENTR U community

All faculty, teaching staff and staff interested in entrepreneurship education are welcome to join this community and explore.
