On behalf of the Research in Enterprise Education Community of Interest
We hosted the Research workshop on Entrepreneurship Education 27 November:
‘Progressing through and reaching beyond boundaries in entrepreneurship education’
The workshop explored how entrepreneurship education (EE) and related research , can inform, assist and evaluate educational design and practices, in enabling learners, learning and educators to move across such boundaries as:
- Educational and age levels – progressions through school, college, university and lifelong learning;
- Intersubjective learning between disciplines and subjects: beyond business and management;
- Innovative pedagogical, andragogical and heutagogical approaches in learning and design;
- Different kinds of learning spaces, sites and organisations;
- Internationally, across national and EU-UK borders.
The speakers were:
- Professor David Rae, Director, CEI
- Dr Elena Ruskovaara, Director of Entrepreneurship Education, Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Finland and Visiting Senior Research fellow at LCBS spoke on Learning from Enterprise education policy initiatives in Finland: lessons for ‘progressing through and reaching beyond’
- Professor Malcolm Hoare, Visiting Professor, CEI spoke on Enterprise Education and Lifelong Learning – Unlocking the potential for empowerment and social justice
- Dr Oluwasoye Mafimisebi, Senior Lecturer, CEI spoke on Entrepreneurship Education: Moving Between African and UK Contexts
The workshop closed with a plenary session to develop research project ideas and collaborations across boundaries. It has already led to new research relationships and ideas.
