Rowan provides an ideal environment to learn about advancing education, as the university is able to exhibit their new business school building, completed in early 2017, that supports the Rohrer College of Business’ 77 percent increase in students from 2012 to 2017.
Attendees also have the opportunity to gain insight into USASBE’s new peer reviewed journal, Entrepreneurship Education and Pedagogy. The publication showcases both qualitative and quantitative research articles, teaching cases, and learning innovation. Since the journal is a forum made specifically for entrepreneurship educators, attendees may also benefit from the section of the Summit dedicated to “Contemporary Tools and Research Opportunities for Entrepreneurship Educators.”
A portion of the day includes attendees experiencing Studio 231, Rowen’s Makerspace and Experiential Learning Laboratory. The makerspace is a place for students from all majors to transform their ideas into actionable startup steps. Following the tour, a session will address the “Practical Approach to Launch and Success,” specifically in experiential learning spaces.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Rebecca Corbin, the president of the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship, who will speak about the “mass diffusion of academic makerspaces.” Dr. Susana Santos, an Assistant Professor at Rowan’s Business School, will also speak, addressing how to “develop a makers mindset in students.”
Registration is now open and tickets are priced at $79 until September 2nd, when they will increase to $89. A reception, breakfast, dinner and lunch are included in the registration.
