Dr. Alice de Koning, PhD – Senior Instructor, Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Dr. Alice de Koning has supported the development of four new undergraduate courses in entrepreneurial thinking, including some in the Schulich School of Engineering (Design and Prototyping), one at the Haskayne School of Business (Accounting for SMEs and Entrepreneurs), and one more on system-based problem-solving, which is still in development at the Haskayne School of Business. She has led the development of entrepreneurial-thinking modules within existing and new courses, with the goal of leveraging across programs. Dr. de Koning collaborates frequently with other faculty members and provides mentorship to new and incoming sessional instructors.
Developing a combination of videos and lesson plans/modules, with particular focus on team works, entrepreneurial identity and the cannabis industry, Dr. de Koning has also been creating three cases in social enterprise which will be submitted for publication in the near future. This past year, she supported the development of the academic program for Financial Feminism, a joint venture of the Haskayne School and The51. She participates with Financial Feminism as an instructor and in supporting the academic team as a mentor.
