Teaching Entrepreneurship Across the Disciplines

Posted By Karen-Michelle Mirko, Monday, November 18, 2013

Exciting to be live blogging from NACCE Miami Dade College Summit

 

Presenters:

  • Prof. Isabel Del-Pino-Allen, English & Communications, Miami Dade College, North Campus
  • Prof. Zulfikar Kalam, Criminal Justice, Miami Dade College, North Campus
  • James Van Voris, School of Entertainment & Design Technology, Producer
  • Prof. Kim Simon, Business Administration, Madisonville Community College, NACCE Faculty Ambassador for HP LIFE

 How can we integrate entrepreneurship across the curriculum?

  • Need to remember it is not a one day conversation but a ongoing process. We need to change the culture to be entrepreneurial.
  • Remember entrepreneurship is as different as the people that create it. Diversity must be paid attention to. (Amen!)
  • Create a mindset so that entrepreneurship is not "out there" but internalized.
  • Many students are already entrepreneurial because they are self-employed. These students sometimes view being self-employed not as important as having a Corporate job. This mindset has to change.
  • Entrepreneurship education is like stretching. It feels good when get started but settle into our habitual sedentary way. However, in entrepreneurship education, we need to stand up and keep stretching. 
  • Problem based learning helps students how they can pivot themselves in their careers and also be intrapreneurs in their jobs.
  • Immigrants can be the most entrepreneurial since they needed to be entrepreneurial to make a living.
  • Remember students in welding, entertainment technology will most likely start a business. They need to be equipped to be successful and profitable.
