This course focuses on introducing participants to state-of-the-art research in entrepreneurship education with particular focus on developing their own research agendas.
This six-day course targets PhD students and junior faculty who are undertaking research in entrepreneurship education. For most of these participants the area of entrepreneurship education contains a multidisciplinary element, either because they have their background in entrepreneurship and have to extend their knowledge in the area of learning and pedagogy or because they come from education and pedagogy and have to improve their competencies in entrepreneurship research in order to deliver entrepreneurship courses.
The six days will include the following themes (i) A historical overview of the development of entrepreneurship education research; (ii) The central phenomenon of entrepreneurship and genesis of opportunities (iii) Entrepreneurial didactics research; (iv) Transformation processes, entrepreneurial pedagogy and learning research; (v) Constructing an entrepreneurial context; (vi) The research-to-teaching-to-research cycle.
The course will contain both pre-course work in the form of reading selected articles; the post-course work will be the production of a paper on own research in collaboration with a senior faculty.
