Flexible Learning Platform for Entrepreneurship

TitleFlexible Learning Platform for Entrepreneurship
Faculty/College/UnitSauder School of Business
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

This project seeks to develop a world-class entrepreneurship flexible learning platform, for use across UBC in undergraduate, graduate, and non-credit workshop programs. The initial flexible learning entrepreneurship modules will be harnessed by several undergraduate courses, impacting students across multiple faculties. This initiative is key to the goal of significantly increasing access to entrepreneurship programming beyond the Sauder School of Business to the university as a whole.

Some of the objectives of the project are to assemble and create modular learning resources that can be re-purposed and combined in various ways to support entrepreneurial learning environments at the undergraduate, graduate, and non-credit level; to assess these resources against proposed learning outcomes using pre-post assessment methods and analytics data; and to develop an entrepreneurship platform within a Content Management System/Wiki to support a cohort and self-paced company start-up processes and curated content on different concepts, opportunities, and contexts.
