Lex Burton Teaching E&I Certificate ProgramRCIE Innovation and Entrepreneurship Faculty Training Certificate Program

The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Faculty Training Certificate will provide faculty members from across campus with the opportunity to learn new pedagogical methods that will allow for the incorporation of concepts associated with innovation and entrepreneurship into their classes.  The concepts covered will range from basic techniques to increase student’s creativity and idea generation process to more sophisticated techniques such as how to use the business model canvas.  Faculty will be exposed to these techniques through a series of 75 minute workshops that will kick off with a one day boot camp designed to allow faculty to identify a course they are teaching that would benefit from the integration of these principles, identifying the learning objectives they hope to achieve through the addition of the innovation and entrepreneurship activity and creating a proposed implementation plan for the upcoming academic year.
