Trebar to present at Ohio's premier higher education conference
Robert Trebar, dean of management studies at Lake Erie College, will present at The University System of Ohio’s Learning, Libraries & Technology (LLT) Conference March 1-3 in Columbus.
After a review of competitive proposals, the University System of Ohio's selection committee invited Trebar to present “Entrepreneurship and the Liberal Arts College.” Trebar will discuss the notion that the formation of new enterprises (business or non-profit) through entrepreneurship is critical to the economic future of Ohio, yet many college students lack the opportunity to learn about and experience the entrepreneurship process.
The great majority of higher education programs dealing with the topic of entrepreneurship are geared toward engineering and business students. This session explores educational models by which students in the liberal arts can explore the process of entrepreneurship and leverage their innate capacity for creativity, innovation and risk-taking and, in doing so, prepare themselves to drive the future economic and social development of the state of Ohio.
Considered Ohio's premier higher education conference, the LLT will focus on topics such as Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century, Student Success, Ohio Is Moving Forward, Transforming Technologies and P-20 Education. The Conference will also include keynote speakers, vendor exhibits and technology demonstrations at Innovation Island.
Past conferences have attracted attendees who come from a wide range of higher education positions, including faculty, librarians, instructional designers, distance learning directors, professional development personnel, campus and college technology coordinators, student support personnel and others interested in technology-enabled education.
