Testing the Waters – A Deliberate Approach to Entrepreneurism Curriculum Design

 

Guide Description:

Developing a curriculum for Entrepreneurial Studies in an environment conscious of class size and enrollment is not for the faint of heart! This session outlines the journey of Entrepreneurism from buzzword of the day to curriculum research to the trial by fire known as curriculum committee. Learn how Jefferson Community College developed an Associate Degree emphasis in Entrepreneurism utilizing existing courses.

 

Full Description:  

Entrepreneurism is much more than the fad of the day. With the United States evolving to a service-oriented economy, tremendous opportunities exist for those possessing the personality and skills necessary to work for themselves. An equally exciting opportunity exists for those educational institutions that serve the grass roots of their communities. The Associate of Applied Business Degree with an Entrepreneurship emphasis allows today’s community college to engage the credit student who may desire a career as an entrepreneur.

 

The outline of the evolution of the Entrepreneurship program at Jefferson Community College in Steubenville, Ohio will be shared with participants. Included will be:

 

·         Program Rationale

·         Course Rationale

·         Catalogue Grids

·         Contribution of Assessment Activities

·         Cross-Curriculum Involvement

·         Advisory Committee Contributions

·         Winning at Curriculum Committee

·         Assessment Procedures

·         Strategies for Coexistence with the Non-Credit Community/Industrial Training Department

 

Additionally, participants will be invited to engage in a discussion to share best practices in curriculum development and to discuss the potential of entrepreneurship education.

 

Hand-outs provided will include program requirement grid worksheets, suggested timelines, and suggestions for utilizing existing courses.

Customer Service – Not Just for the Entrepreneur

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Customer Service – Not Just for the Entrepreneur

 

Guide Description: 

Ask any entrepreneur about the importance of customer service to the on-going success of their venture and chances are they’ll tell you customer service is paramount to success. How are we as faculty doing in providing great service to our students? This workshop explores the concept of customer service through the eyes of the student.

 

Full Desription:   

What’s your personal customer service scorecard? Are you meeting the needs of your students in a manner that helps them succeed? Customer service is a learned behavior and we can start our students down the path of great customer service by modeling the behavior that can make or break their business.

 

Participants will identify the strengths and weaknesses of their personal customer service style as well as that of their institution. Additionally participants will be challenged to define customer service in terms of how well they are helping their students understand the opportunities and obstacles of entrepreneurship.

 

Additionally, participants will be invited to engage in a discussion to share best practices in curriculum development and to discuss the potential of entrepreneurship education.

 

Hand-outs provided will include program requirement grid worksheets, suggested timelines, and suggestions for utilizing existing courses.
