I learned two things during this interview:1. They spend the time up front to ensure they understand exactly what the client needs - even if that means it is NOT training.2. They ensure there are frequent feedback loops with the client throughout development...If you want to hear first hand how a firm uses best practices to deliver HIGH quality learning development you must listen in on this episode!Hilary Buchholz / Director of MediaJean Reith / Senior Instructional DesignerFollow Michaels & Associates on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
In Episode 6 of The Lurnist Show, Debra talked with Professor Aram Chávez of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University.  Among other things, they discussed teaching and mentoring entrepreneurship curriculum in universities.  Professor Chavez frees students from the traditional constructs of uniformity with lateral thinking through entrepreneurial road mapping—teaching interdisciplinary courses with an atlas called Aha To Exit. His current focus is to teach hundreds of students annually; and, mentor dozens within ASU. He teaches the only process for innovators to become enterprisers. To that end, he recently co-authored a generative map with a temporal view of how to teach innovators to become entrepreneurs.  Professor Chavez has earned the Highest Rated Professor at ASU (State Press, 2015) and the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award for his innovative work with students at ASU. He was also featured in the Phoenix Business Journal as "20 People to Know in Startups".Professor Chavez spent some time discussing how entrepreneurship should be taught in the engineering schools as they are the innovators.  He also discussed the gaps in how entrepreneurship is taught in universities and how he is filling that gap with a standardized “map” for startups with his company, Aha to Exit. If you are an educator in entrepreneurship, or an innovator, you need to listen to this episode as it gives insight into how Professor Chavez has revolutionized and standardized the way entrepreneurship is taught.Links and resources:Aha to Exit – go here for the Startup Map, Startup Bootcamp, and other entrepreneur resourcesGnomigos – one of the companies owned by Professor Chavez discussed in the episodeAram Chavez LinkedIn ProfileASU Engineering School Entrepreneurship + Innovation Program
