Entrepreneurship Education: Handling different educational contexts

Societal interest for entrepreneurship has increased significantly over the last decades, consequently, there is an increased interest in entrepreneurship education. Entrepreneurship is no longer only associated with new venture creation and of equal importance, is focused on how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. In the contemporary classroom, a course in entrepreneurship seeks to equip students with creativity, abilities to handle uncertainty and risk, as well as providing the opportunity to develop skills in order to face future challenges and opportunities in different entrepreneurial contexts. For example,  the start-up scene and change agents within public and private organisations.  

Today, it is possible to have a course in entrepreneurship consisting of students from different faculties. Further, many entrepreneurship students interact with the surrounding entrepreneurial eco-system, which then becomes an arena for learning outside of the classroom. These changes in entrepreneurship imply that the teaching context is interdisciplinary.

The increased interest in, and the broadened view of entrepreneurship education, including interdisciplinarity and the eco-system, provide questions regarding pedagogies and learning environments, such as: What to teach and how to introduce entrepreneurship? Learning activities, the subject matter, and the temporal conditions become important when addressing the contemporary entrepreneurial learning space.  

In the 9th European Entrepreneurship Education Workshop we will address these challenges.

The second day of the workshop will start with a keynote speech by the recipient of the 2020 European Entrepreneurship Education Award: Professor David Rae, De Montfort University, UK.

This is followed by a round-table discussion related to the keynote speech, moderated by Professor Hans Landström. Previous award laureates will participate.

The second part of the morning will be organised as a workshop. The starting point for this workshop is a short introduction by Professor Diamanto Politis on different contexts for entrepreneurial learning. The classroom is one context for learning, but entrepreneurship students learn from actions and interactions in other contexts. Questions related to this will be raised and elaborated, such as: How do we handle this as educators? How does entrepreneurial learning outside the classroom affect our teaching? How does it affect entrepreneurial learning among our students? Can we take better advantage of the learning contexts that surround our courses and programmes?
