The ability to enrich student learning is fundamental to the educational process and requires a broad range of talents. A truly great educator will inspire students through a well-grounded approach to stimulating intellectual curiosity and growth, while maintaining high standards of performance. This inspiration and stimulation requires a great deal of effort in course and program development, delivery, and performance, as well as the sharing of experiences.

The individual is the core of entrepreneurial thought and action, and this book is unique in that it offers insight and detail into how self and contextual awareness is created and delivered at Babson College, a school that takes a strong leadership role in entrepreneurial education.

In this book, educational scholars from a variety of academic disciplines share their experiences. These scholars view teaching as both a serious responsibility and a wonderful opportunity and have created a consequential learning environment that enhances intellectual growth and practical achievement. This book has been written by educators for educators who want to engage and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.
