I am presently working on several projects connected with entrepreneurship education and there is inevitably a menu of ways to “teach” or “organise learning”.
But before we stray into detail – the most Frequently Asked question continues to be – “can you teach it?”. My response so far has been that it is no different from teaching management, music, math or geography or any other subject – it ultimately comes down to people wanting to learn. So – if we get past this basic question then we get to “how” questions.
Learning by doing? Learning through simulations? Use of case studies? From mentors and coaches? In the calss room based strongly on theory? Videos? On-line models of learning? Action learning – i.e. through problem solving and applying the lessons? and so forth.
Going back to the question – in the title – I would welcome some intelligent thoughts and comments on the subject. We are getting ready for the Advanced Diploma in two weeks time – (see www.cfel.jbs.cam.ac.uk); working on a review of education at Laurea University in Finland and thinking about scaling up entrepreneurship education on a global basis as a result of a major project for the World Economic Forum.
