  • Wayne Chang - Lecturer at Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business
  • Connor Al-Joundi - BET 300 student
  • Neil McKay - BET 608 student

Location: E7-7303


Wayne Chang and his former students describe how their courses develop entrepreneurial mindset through experiential learning experiences.  The classroom environment is in workshop mode where students communicate and collaborate in small groups and give brief presentations on specific concepts which are contextualized for business and startups' processes.  They next apply their learning outside the classroom in the form of actual startup pitch competitions, as well as assessing and iterating business models for actual community partners or early stage startups in the Waterloo Region startup ecosystem.  These courses are designed with elements of Cognitive Load Theory, the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship and the CAST Universal Design for Learning.
