OPEN 2021 will bring together educators, students, and change makers across the science & technology innovation and entrepreneurship education sphere to learn emerging best practices and forge new relationships in the field. At OPEN, you’ll gain practical tools to apply in your own class or program and collaborate meaningfully with other attendees during immersive sessions.
OPEN 2021 will go beyond simply broadcasting content sessions —this year’s convening will feature session formats adapted to provide maximum engagement in a virtualized environment, allowing you to learn, share ideas, and engage in deep discussion.
In a year when faculty, staff, and administrators have had to adapt like never before to continue meeting students’ needs, we are looking forward to bringing our community together again.
When you register, you’ll have access dozens of interactive, online sessions on the most pressing topics in innovation and entrepreneurship education like:
• Engaging and supporting underrepresented student innovators
• Proven practices for teaching I&E
• Growing your on-campus entrepreneurial ecosystem
• Environmental and social sustainability
• Strategies for teaching and supporting students during the pandemic
• Entrepreneurial mindset, and more!
