Description

The globalised media and knowledge society of the 21st century demands for citizens who are self-determined life-long learners possessing a critical consciousness. Acknowledging criticism of instructional teaching, knowledge transfer, and a disconnected education system, the project aims to study student agency and entrepreneurship through opening up education. Agency is explored as the ability of individuals to achieve their potential to act in society where entrepreneurship takes the process of acting towards the creation of value. We propose to research the ways in which individuals achieve agency through education and examine the opportunities to design education that enhances agency and entrepreneurship
