Ideas for presenting the course – This document contains ideas for how to present this information, depending on your time, resources, and preferences.
How long does each tool take?
- That depends on the tool, and on you. Most of the videos are under 10 minutes long. The worksheets should take between 30 minutes and two hours (some are more involved than others). The rest depends on how you structure your class time. See the “Ideas for Presenting this Course” document for more details.
Should my students work alone or in groups?
- That is up to you and to the students, but we have found that students working in pairs often produce more compelling solutions than students working alone. The key is to set the teams (whether they are teams of 1, 2, or as many as 4) during the first session, and don’t allow changing.
What if I don’t have any background knowledge about entrepreneurship?
- This course is designed to contain all the information your students need – just stay ahead of them in the lesson progression! If you would like to know more, we recommend reading The Lean Startup by Eric Reis.
