Educating the Innovative and Entrepreneurial Individual in China

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review

This paper focuses on how innovation and entrepreneurship education is perceived and practiced by Chinese university students. It takes a policy launched by the Chinese government as its starting point, which emphasizes that Chinese universities need to cultivate autonomous learners who can come up with creative solutions to complex problems. The results of the study stem from fieldwork conducted in a design thinking course, where the students were introduced to pedagogical methods that differed from what they had experienced before. That caused the students to face three dilemmas in which the role of the individual was negotiated. Those dilemmas concerned the relationship between the teacher and students, the collaborative processes in group work, and factors that constitute the purpose of becoming innovative and entrepreneurial. The article shows that the expected outcomes of the Chinese government’s policy on innovation and entrepreneurship were both confirmed and challenged by the students, which leads us to consider new questions with implications for research on as well as approaches to teaching innovation and entrepreneurship.
