EE Explore on 28 January on Unsettling Entrepreneurship Education

Welcome to EE Explore on Unsettling Entrepreneurship Education!

The event will take place on Thursday 28th January 2021 from 16-17.30 (CET). The facilitators will be Karin Berglund, Ulla Hytti & Karen Verduijn.

The event will build on a recent Special Issue in Entrepreneurship Education & Pedagogy (EE&P), vol. 3, issue 3. A link to the SI https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2515127420921480

In this Special Issue, authors reflect on and resist the tendency to see students as consumers with the ‘right’ to take part in entrepreneurship education and to effectively shape their enterprising selves. The necessity to keep on reflecting on unsettling entrepreneurship education became apparent also through the ongoing present-day Covid-19 crisis, which suddenly changed the pedagogical scene and put forward the need to move our pedagogical aspirations of unsettling to a digital platform and online teaching. To frame the need for continuous reflection, we suggest that this crisis can teach us something as valuable as ‘standing still’, and can help us to reconsider what kind of entrepreneurial society we build together with our students via entrepreneurship education. Perhaps there is a need not to unsettle but rather ‘resettle’ society, and entrepreneurship education, into a new direction?

Registration deadline: Monday 25th January 2021 (by 11.30 pm CET)

EE Explore Event on 3 December on Pedagogical Interventions in EntEd

3rd of December at 10 AM to 11 AM (CET) online

In the event selected participants are pitching their paper, based on the theme Pedagogical Interventions in Entrepreneurship Education, followed by a digital roundtable discussion.

There is growing acknowledgement that educational systems and methods need to move from traditional to more creative, interactive and student-centered educational models in order to change students’ mindset so they may excel in highly dynamic and uncertain environments. Yet, the issue of the most effective pedagogical method to encourage the development of an entrepreneurial mindset is an area that raises regular discussion and debates, as well as calls for further exploration. In this event we will be exploring different types of pedagogical interventions that can be used to enhance students’ entrepreneurial mindset.

As moderators for the event we have the pleasure of presenting Associate professor Karen Williams Middleton and Senior Lecturer Gustav Hägg.

This is the second in a series of events that Engage – Centre for Engaged Education through Entrepreneurship together with ECSB has launched online.
