Teaching with Your Whole Brain

In my work with Uncharted Learning, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know several big thinkers in the field of entrepreneurship and education. Most recently, I participated in a professional development session facilitated by my friend and colleague Jim Friedman from Miami University’s John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship. (I could, and will someday, dedicate an entire post or series of posts to everything I’ve learned and all the wild ideas I’ve developed in my work with Jim. Just see his “creative license” below to get a sense of his total brilliance.)

The session Jim led was on Whole Brain® Thinking – which required completing an assessment called the HBDI® to measure how I prefer to think, and a debrief to uncover what that means for my work and collaborative relationships, as well as the group dynamics of our team. I was so inspired by this experience that I then went on to become a Whole Brain® Thinking/ HBDI® Certified Practitioner.

I recently took some time to reflect on this experience and what I believe Whole Brain® Thinking could mean for the field of entrepreneurship education. Read more in this post:  Entrepreneurial Thinking and Teaching with Your Whole Brain.
