  2. Entrepreneurs in Action! Purpose • To develop a cross-disciplinary problem-based learning environment using entrepreneurship as a unifying point. • To connect interested colleges and universities together to implement the Entrepreneurs In Action! Program.

  3. Entrepreneurs in Action! Assumptions • Twenty-first century entrepreneurs must think differently – more creatively. • Schools should teach about uncertainty, helping students learn how to deal with ambiguity and how to manage chaos. • We need to develop citizens who will “make jobs instead of take jobs.” • People need to know how to be creative and think outside the “box” of conformity. • Americans must be prepared to compete effectively and individually in the new global economic environment.

  4. Entrepreneurs in Action! Outcomes • To develop a cross-disciplinary, problem-based learning environment and to extend the model to other colleges and universities via network development. • To assist college students to interface in helping to solve local community problems in ways that result in business ventures. • To generate new, creative ideas to revitalize downtown Athens and to use this process as a model for other cites.

  5. Entrepreneurs in Action! Outcomes • To develop an instructional model that encourages faculty members to work collaboratively across disciplines to identify new business ventures within the multi-disciplinary approach and to connect several colleges and universities together through our web-based EIA programs. • To encourage students to see new, innovative opportunities and to marshal resources to develop business ventures. • To teach students to create jobs as opposed to taking jobs.

  6. Entrepreneurs in Action! Outcomes • To help students develop and understand the freedom and fulfillment associated with self-employment and self-direction. • To develop a cross-disciplinary, cross-college/university EIA program that can be expanded to include other schools later. • To connect our work to the local community via a network of Online Experts.

  7. Entrepreneurs in Action! Description of EIA Experts Entrepreneurs in Action! Community Schools

  8. Entrepreneurs in Action! Description of EIA Entrepreneurial Thinking • Tolerance for risk • Opportunity recognition • The gathering of resources to address a want or need • Approaching a problem from a fresh or unexpected point of view (creativity in problem-solving) • Combining existing knowledge in new ways (innovation in problem-solving) • Vision • Independent thinking • Expressing an action orientation (Clouse & Goodin, 2000) Complexity of problem-solving …the use of creativity and innovation as an integral part of a process which employs knowledge and experience (Simon, 1986; Kim, 1990).

  9. Entrepreneurs in Action! Learning Theories Whole Part Whole Teaching Activities Problem Context Problem Solution Subject Matter Problem Solving “Whole - Part - Whole” Teaching Student groups “plunge into” the problem, take it apart, then put it back together into a new “whole,” which represents their own solution.

  10. Entrepreneurs in Action! Learning Theories Apply Learn Learn Apply Apply Learn “Just in Time” Teaching Students learn a new concept just at the moment when it is needed. Recursive Design Continual application reinforces learning.

  11. Entrepreneurs in Action! Learning Theories Connecting to the Framework of the Learner

  12. Entrepreneurs in Action! Learning Theories Connecting to the Framework of the Learner

  13. Entrepreneurs in Action! Writing a Case Featured Cases 1. Blackout in America! (Electrical Energy Case) This case is about the great electrical energy blackout that began in the Midwest and continued to the Eastern US several months ago. This case encourages students to think about new alternatives to electrical power. 2. A Question of Power (Oil Related Case) This case is associated with the oil industry and provides the student with the opportunity to investigate new business ventures related to other sources of energy. 3. Chasing the Dragon (Drug Related Case) This case is about the problems associated with the increase in the number of methamphetamine labs in Tennessee. The production of such toxic illegal drugs has created a major social, political and economic problem across our country. 4. Not in My Backyard! (Recycling Case) The United States is a “throw away society.” This case is about recycling and the many social and economic issues related to this problem.

  14. Entrepreneurs in Action! Writing a Case Featured Cases (continued)  5.Music City Blues (Music Case) This is a case about the music business. How does one write lyrics and find a means to support himself or herself? 6. Talking to the Air (Wireless Technology Case) This is a wireless technology case involving the opportunity to develop a wireless downtown community in a small town. 7. The Santa Fe Effect (Small Town Redevelopment) This is a case designed around the rejuvenation of small downtown areas. 8. The Phoenix (Cyber Café Case) This case is written to encourage students to develop a cyber café with a cross-disciplinary learning environment that could be the place where great ideas germinate and move into business ventures.

  15. Entrepreneurs in Action! Writing a Case Featured Cases (continued) 9. Long Lines, Short Tempers (Homeland Security) This case is written for engineering design classes interested in small device designs for homeland security and terrorist prevention. One of the most pressing problems facing the United States at this time is the threat of terrorist attacks, both on the homeland and on foreign soil. This case provides a scenario for students to develop Micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) to help protect the security of the homeland. 10. Fashion, Fashion Everywhere, and Nothing to Wear (Fashion, Design, and International Development Case). This case is designed to investigate the impact of fashion on creativity, ethics, culture and international development. 11. The Night of Celebration (Wealth Distribution Case) This is an introductory case to engage students in thinking creatively and entrepreneurially about a business venture. It also involves the transfer of wealth from generation to generation. This case is usually used as a teaching strategy to introduce the major concepts of entrepreneurship.

  17. Entrepreneurs in Action! Testing the Case Quantitative Analysis Qualitative Analysis Entrepreneurs in Action! Mixed Methodology • Can students be taught to think entrepreneurially by using web based case studies? • During the course of the intervention, will students show any change in the complexity of their problem-solving process? • What type of information will Online Experts provide the students to help solve the case? • How do the students, teachers and mentors react to the curriculum?

  18. Entrepreneurs in Action! Testing the Case GUIDING QUESTIONS • How did students’ self-perceptions change during the course of the program? • Are students more or less inclined to start a business after participating in the program? • Were student products deemed appropriate responses to the case? • Were student products judged to be creative? • How effective was the program at teaching entrepreneurial thinking? • How well did the program achieve its goal of integration?

  33. Health Care CaseDeane Peterson • Health care costs out paced other sectors of US GDP • Vast Technological Breakthroughs • Healthcare Institutions Complex Org.

  34. Quality of Care v. Cost • Perceptions—quality of care are directly proportional • Progressive management (i.e.,Six Sigma, TBS) are practiced • Quality care & cost are often actually inversely proportional • ThadaCare (Appleton, WI) state’s lowest cost provider & 98% on CMS quality scales

  35. A New Perception & Approach • Good quality healthcare—coordinated, technologically advanced and personalized– cost less than poor quality care—Regina E. Herzlinger, “Lets Put Consumer in Charge of Health care”, Harvard Business Review, July 2002.

  36. The Dilemma • Academic disciplines are so segregated that students are not shown the interrelations nor give the tools for complex & chaotic world • Medical & Nursing Education—does not provide training outside of traditional healthcare components • Graduates are poorly prepared for complex & competitive workplace

  37. Building on EIA • “Critical Condition”, a case study about the medical practice management • Designed for undergraduate and graduate nursing programs • Presents real world example of healthcare problems • Prepares students for life after graduation & stimulates entrepreneurship
