Meet the Edupreneur Team
The Edupreneurial Educator course is the realization of a vision of a number of people, including faculty, deans, and staff at Sonoma State University. This vision arose out of mutual conversations between individuals in our Schools of Business and Education about entrepreneurialism and began in the minds of Mark Nelson , the SSU Entrepreneur in Residence at Sonoma State University, and Bill Silver , the Dean of the School of Business and Economics.
It grew with the imagination and excitement of Paul Porter , Professor of Educational Leadership and Carlos Ayala , Dean of the School of Education. We believe this is the first such Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) focusing on infusing entrepreneurial thinking into schools via a joint effort by education and business, or Edupreneurialism, a term we coined to capture the interdependent skills and concepts of business and education...and we are very excited. We invite you to join this movement!
