Next week I will be in Boston to teach at MIT. I will be teaching a course "Scaling Social Entrepreneurship" at Sloan School. This is the fourth year that I have been fortunate to teach a January IAP course at Sloan.
The first two years I taught with my friend Chuck Kane, who is an Adjunct Professor at Sloan (International finance), and we talked mostly about One Laptop per Child. Chuck was the President of OLPC for many years and I joined OLPC as he was leaving.
Year 3 I taught a course alone called "Social Entrepreneurship: Business Model or Fad". This year I am teaching alone, but I hope to have Chuck come in as a guest speaker. I also expect a friend who is a professor at Babson College to stop by the class. He and I teach an entrepreneurship program together which I cannot mention without prior approval of the sponsor.
I will post the class slides for my MIT Sloan course after it is completed.
My favorite post about MIT is "A Love Letter to MIT", which describes a young woman's many years associated with MIT but never formally enrolled there and the special place she found.
