Join Education Week Webinar on New Education Entrepreneurship Programs

Join us tomorrow at 2 p.m. ET as Education Week hosts a webinar on colleges and universities creating programs and courses designed to spawn entrepreneurship in K-12 education, a growing area of focus on campuses nationwide.

You can register for the event, "Producing the Next Generation of K-12 Enterpreneurs," and submit questions, through Education Week's website. The topic is one that has a lot of relevance today, as K-12 and higher education officials and business leaders look for ways to make school systems more innovative, academically and financially.

Our guests will be Andrea Hodge, the executive director of Rice University's Education Entrepreneurship Program, located within the Jones Graduate School of Business; and Kendra Hearn, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan school of education who helped design a new course on educational entrepreneurship. I'll be moderating.

You can see my recent Ed Week story for background on the issue, as well as an item I wrote on the University of Pennsylvania creating a new center designed to give enterpreneurs and startups access to academic scholars and advice on research and other issues.
