Conference Agenda (all times PDT)
9am Kickoff with Doan Winkel
9:15-10:30am Julienne Shields and the Ping Pong Challenge
Join Julie live in her classroom as she gives her students piles of ping pong balls and a complex mission to accomplish with them.
Watch (and help!) her students iterate their way to a solution as they discover the benefits of small, fast experiments and embracing the failures they encounter along the way.
Use this exercise in your class to help your students learn to take calculated risks and an iterative/experimental approach to solving problems.
10:45-12:00pm Jim Hart Creating with Customers in Mind
Jim will walk you through an interactive, partnered, exercise you can use with your students to help them understand:
- Creativity comes from asking the right questions
- The best ideas are inspired by customers
- Interviewing customers isn’t as hard/scary as it seems
If you want to help your students with idea generation and motivating them to interview customers, definitely join Jim’s session.
12:15-1:30pm Justin Wilcox Surveys vs. Interviews
Justin will show you one of the most popular exercises from the Experiential Entrepreneurship Curriculum (ExEC).
This exercise will show your students once and for all, why it’s better for them to use customer interviews for problem discovery, than it is to use surveys!
Our ExEC professors cite this lesson as producing “Light Bulb Moments” in helping students understand the power of customer interviews. Join us to see it in action!
It Works In Our Curriculum, So Why Not A Conference?
After the positive impact of our ExEC entrepreneurship curriculum’s “Show, Don’t Tell” approach to experiential learning across 20 universities, we decided to apply that approach to the conference experience.
We know you enjoy learning by doing. We enjoy showing, not telling. It’s a perfect match!
See you there – be sure to grab your ticket here! Remember, register even if you can’t join us live because we’ll have recordings available.
