Technopreneurship Faculty Training
Due to the success of the Visiting US Professors and UC Berkeley Study Visit, the Commission for Higher Education (CHED) in the Philippines has introduced Technopreneurship 101 (T101), a basic entrepreneurship course crafted for engineering and technology courses into the college curricula by 2018.
With the establishment of Technopreneurship hubs (TechHubs) in higher education institutes, these centers will house Master Trainers who will train professors on the subject of technopreneurship and become centers of excellence and learning in their area or region.
Aside from partnering with CHED in rolling out T101, PhilDev collaborated with leading technopreneurship professors from the University of California Berkeley, University of California Merced, Case Western Reserve University, Cornell University, Pennsylvania State University, Texas A&M University, University of Florida, University of Houston, University of Washington, and the University of the Philippines in developing the subject.
PhilDev will enlist US-based professors and entrepreneurs to teach 200 master trainers, who will in turn pass this knowledge on to a projected 2,000 additional professors.
