Hi, I'm Brent
Here's an introductory video highlighting my work in the classroom at Arizona State University. Relatedly, I have been recognized as a 2022 Top 5% Teacher in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
Venture Based Learning Model
I am a leading designer and practitioner of Venture Based Learning pedagogies.
Mentoring is Teaching
I am the co-designer of the mentoring is teaching model at ASU, which manifests in many courses and programs via the integration of para-professional Venture Mentors and ProTAs.
I was honored to serve as a featured guest on the College Checklist, where I discussed the importance of an entrepreneurial mindset at work.
Venture Development in Higher Education
I designed, launched, and scaled an innovative "league-style" model of enterprise-wide venture development at Arizona State University. I captured the impetus, experiments, and outcomes of this work in a four-part video series.
Entrepreneurial Mindset 101
I co-led the efforts to institutionalize entrepreneurial mindset development within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. I captured the genesis and goals for this work in a two-part video series.
Marketplace Conversation Pedagogy
I built upon Steve Blank's ground-breaking customer discovery and development pedagogies, which were popularized by the lean startup movement, via a more accessible marketplace conversation model. I captured the genesis of this evolution in a five-part video series.
I was a co-founding member of ASU's NSF-funded I-Corps technology commercialization program.
