Two Entreprenuership courses available to non business students

ENTRE 370 is a great intro class, and like most other business classes is not open to non-business students until the first day of class. However both sections have about 20 spots left- so interested students should attend class on the first day and register themselves that day. If they do not meet the pre-requisites but are interested in taking the class, they can email Emily at eacox@uw.edu to request to be allowed in the section. She will then keep a list of approved students and get it over to me on the first day of classes, where students will be added based on space availability and on a first come first serve basis. Unlike most business courses, this is one class where the professor is allowing some flexibility in the pre-reqs (though this may not always be the case.)

ENTRE 490 -Grand Challenges for Entrepreneurs is open to all non-business students NOW who are sophomores and above- and will explore big problems and opportunities facing society, ranging from healthcare, education, and big data to poverty. The course examines how solutions to these massive challenges can be researched, validated, and implemented using such entrepreneurial skills as creativity, opportunity recognition, business models, pivoting, and execution. Entrepreneurship is both an individual and team activity. Therefore this course incorporates both individual and group efforts. Students form project teams early in the quarter and meet regularly to prepare for class discussion.

AUT Course: INTSCI 401 - Integrated Sciences Practicum (2 credits)

Are you interested in science education, science writing, science policy, or other areas that require an integrated sciences perspective? Would you like to:
  • Participate in service-based learning within formal or informal science education?
  • Explore strategies for promoting student engagement and classroom equity?
  • Develop your own perspectives on the integration of science, learning, and teaching?
  • Engage collaboratively in reflection, discussion, and presentation of practicum experiences?
INTSCI 401 is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a strong interest in science education. Example practicum experiences include weekly visits to a science classroom, volunteer work at a science or natural history museum, or participation in a science education partnership with a local, regional, or national science research institution or agency.

"I really appreciated learning about different teaching styles and how design elements and learning principles affect a classroom setting. It made observing and volunteering easier because I could look at the descriptions of each and observe them in the classroom. I liked seeing how science was incorporated with the learning styles and observing how students learn."

"Being able to analyze what we observe is very beneficial because if I had no one to share these observations with I would have only a narrow, one-sided view on things and wouldn't have others' perspectives to look at. It has opened up my understanding from all different angles."

-- INTSCI 401 Students

INTSCI 401 will be scheduled to accommodate student and instructor availability. For more information or to request an add code, please email the instructor: bjb@uw.edu
