Economic Empowerment through Entrepreneurship (E3)
Eastern Iowa Community College District and Al Quds College in Jordan will further their collaboration together with an expansion of their earlier partnership. Partners will continue to develop capacity-building polices and strategies that are aimed towards faculty recruitment, retention and professional development.
The partners will support their goals by conducting a "Boot Camp for Entrepreneurs" that will train students on how to successfully start and operate a new business. A "Great Teacher’s Workshop" that the partners also have planned is geared toward interactive learning, professional growth, and introspective approaches toward creative teaching. Similarly, an "E-teaching Workshop," designed for both faculty and administrators, will foster increased skills in developing online courses.
The partnership also plans to engage students by creating and implementing programs of study, such as the Institute for Future Entrepreneurs Exchange (IFEE), which will provide vocational education and technical training that is linked to employment for both Jordanian and American students. The IFEE also will contribute to the development of research in business and entrepreneurship.
