                 Entrepreneurship Education – Lessons from the Trenches
                 Michael S. Lehman

                 The language, experiences and opportunities rooted in
                 entrepreneurship have practical application and exciting
                 potential when applied across academic disciplines. This
                 opening session will lay the framework for effectively
                 integrating the business of new venture creation into the
                 natural and social sciences, the arts and the humanities.

8:00 – 9:00 AM          Breakfast Session and Sill Business Incubator Tour
                        Bob and Eileen Sill Business Incubator

                        See firsthand how a model of „hotel-style‟ incubator
                        space, as well as a shared services area, provides flexibility
                        for student and community entrepreneurs. Pennsylvania‟s
                        Keystone Innovation Zone will be highlighted.

                       Directions to Sill Business Incubator
                 five minute walk/two minute drive from Cloister
                             entrance on 14th Street

9:15 – 10:15 AM    An Engaging Entrepreneurship Program
                   Jim Donaldson
                   C225, Brumbaugh Academic Center

                   In this session, Professor Donaldson will summarize the
                   development of the entrepreneurship curriculum at
                   Juniata College. This history provides the context for the
                   current focus on involving alumni. Using alumni is not
                   unusual (e.g., on-campus speakers). But there are new
                   opportunities for engagement. In Juniata‟s first five years,
                   students in entrepreneurship have shown two propensities.
                   First, students tend to stick closely with ideas that are
                   simple, small scale, and already within their comfort zones.
                   Second, students seem to lose any ability to be objective
                   about their own ideas. Alumni can help on both.

10:25 – 11:10 AM   Entrepreneurship in the Arts
                   Andy Belser and Chad Herzog
                   C116, Brumbaugh Academic Center

                   Art and entrepreneurship are fundamentally connected.
                   Encouraging students to see and understand this
                   relationship will help them successfully make their passion
                   their profession. It is our roles as educators to adequately
                   prepare students in the arts to think about themselves as
                   entrepreneurs and create opportunities that will allow
                   them to explore this relationship.

11:10 – 11:50 AM   Making the Most of CEO
                   Sarah Worley and Bret Naugle
                   C116, Brumbaugh Academic Center

                   The Collegiate Entrepreneur Organization hosts an annual
                   conference that brings together thousands of students and
                   offers the opportunity for peer networking and experiential
                   learning. How can you prepare your students to make the
                   most of this conference? This session will highlight ways in
                   which you can prepare them to successfully network and
                   take advantage of the opportunity. It will also provide
                   discussion on ways to raise the funds to take students to
                   these annual conferences.

noon – 1:00 PM     Lunch
                   Baker Refectory, Ellis Hall
1:30 – 2:30 PM   Stumbling Forward: Using Entrepreneurship
                   to Help Students Learn
                 Pat Weaver
                 C116, Brumbaugh Academic Center

                 An entrepreneurship program at your college can supply
                 you instantly with real-world problems for your students to
                 investigate. Incorporating entrepreneurship projects into
                 your courses helps students remember what they‟ve
                 heard, adopt new skills, integrate ideas, analyze shifting
                 situations, and apply what they know in novel ways. But
                 courses using real projects often progress in fits and starts
                 and present genuine challenges for the teacher. In this
                 session, you will explore these challenges and develop
                 strategies to manage the projects and the students
                 working on them.

2:40 – 3:40 PM   Turn Up the Volume: Use of Multimedia
                   in Entrepreneurship Education
                 Michael S. Lehman
                 C116, Brumbaugh Academic Center

                 Interactive. Engaging. Real-life. These words describe the
                 use of multimedia in entrepreneurship courses. By
                 integrating video clips of new and experienced
                 entrepreneurs into class lectures, group exercises and
                 independent take-home assignments, educators are
                 adding value to entrepreneurial education across the
                 country. In this workshop, participants will learn of specific
                 ways to integrate these clips into either an individual
                 lecture or an entire course.

                 Entrepreneurial Books

                 of entrepreneurial textbooks and learn to design your own
                 customized textbook.

5:00 – 6:00 PM   Necessity and the Other Mothers of Invention
                 Grace M. Fala and Janet Farrell Leontiou

                 Coffee... Jelly... Wax... What do these three seemingly
                 disparate concepts share in common? What can be
                 created when these three objects/concepts are puzzled
                 together? If you can be more inventive you can be more
                 persuasive. Invention was the first of five canons
                 postulated by Aristotle in teaching the art of rhetoric. This
                 interactive workshop or play-shop explores
                 entrepreneurship through the lens of creativity and focuses
                 on invention as a teaching tool and persuasive

                 Clif Kussmaul
                 Shuster Hall, Raystown Field Station

                 This session will present tools and techniques to design and
                 refine early-stage UI prototypes for software applications,
                 web sites, and related systems. First, we discuss the roles of
                 UI prototyping, and its advantages and disadvantages.
                 Next, we introduce paper prototyping, present an
                 example, and teams of attendees apply paper
                 prototyping to a design problem. We then describe how
                 general-purpose presentation software and specialized
                 design software can be used, and teams of attendees use
                 these tools in a second design problem. We conclude with
                 discussion and experimentation, including other activities
                 that can be incorporated into courses and curricula.

8:15 – 8:45PM    An Intellectual Property Resource Review

9:45 – 10:45 AM         Entrepreneurial Skills Development:
                        Connecting Higher Education and the Workplace
                        Rebecca Campbell and Doina Vlad
                        Sill Board Room, von Liebig Center for Science

                        The purpose of this workshop is to present a Small Business
                        Internship Training model that connects students of the
                        liberal arts with small business owners and entrepreneurs. A
                        teaching component based on the National Content
                        Standards for Entrepreneurship Education helps to develop
                        entrepreneurial skills in students through reflective activities,
                        experiential learning, and the maximization of involvement
                        by small business mentors and role models who embody
                        these entrepreneurial characteristics.

10:50 – 11:20           Building Entrepreneurship Opportunities in an
                            Introductory Information Technology Course
                        Marlene Burkhardt
                        Sill Board Room, von Liebig Center for Science

                        Information technology (IT) is always more interesting when
                        you have a useful application. What better way to apply
                        IT and in particular web development skills than to develop
                        a business website where you are the entrepreneur!
                        Chances of having a viable business idea improve with the
                        establishment teams composed of students from a variety
                        of backgrounds including experience, major area of study,
                  and country of origin. You often have just that in an intro IT
                  class. By developing the right mix of skills and interest, one
                  or two ideas may flourish. Even if it is not the one in class,
                  students will be prepared for future opportunities in
                  entrepreneurship. This brief session outlines how to help
                  students develop both IT and entrepreneurship skill sets.

11:20 –11:50 AM   Measuring Success in Terms of Societal Impact
                  Sarah Worley
                  Sill Board Room, von Liebig Center for Science

                  Throughout history social entrepreneurs have provided
                  solutions to social problems and changed the way social
                  systems function. Their standards for success are not
                  measured by the “bottom line” but instead through the
                  “social value” of their ventures. The job of a social
                  entrepreneur is identifying and solving large scale social
                  problems across a wide range of disciplines, but is a career
                  option seldom discussed with college students. This session
                  will discuss the increasing trend of social entrepreneurship
                  and the impact it has on world issues, and offer the
                  necessary language and resources for advisors and
                  professors who want to encourage inquiry into this area.

                  specific action steps designed to further integrate
                  entrepreneurship in their courses and programs.
