Entrepreneurial pedagogies in the Arts @ Aarhus University

Research output: Book/anthology/dissertation/reportBook


The booklet presents a hands-on approach for teachers to what entrepreneurship might look like in the Arts. It provides practical examples and exercises for use in university teaching. It does not give a one-size-fits-all recipe for teaching entrepreneurship. Instead this booklet endeavours to provide a range of tools for classroom teaching that may enhance student learning and understanding of their own potential in relation to the topics they are studying. The booklet is divided into a series of three short chapters. The first presents the background and strategies for introducing active listening and questioning techniques in the classroom. These techniques are explained and examples are given. The second presents a selection of the material available on collaborative learning and peer feedback. Finally we present and discuss the use of software tools for teaching and learning. In addition we make some suggestions for links to resources for entrepreneurship education and provide a list of references for the material mentioned in the booklet. Before we present any tools or exercises we need to define what we mean by entrepreneurship. Over the last decade, university education has become inundated with a rhetoric that uses terms such as entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial mind-set and enterprising behaviour (Robinson & Blenker, 2014). This booklet is a response to some degree to these discourses.
