Abstract

The aim of this workshop is to explore how entrepreneurial team teaching methods help underpin and reinforce the students’ learning experience and enhance their entrepreneurial learning. In this workshop we will explore how entrepreneurial teaching approach equips, encourages and creates interest in non-business university undergraduates in setting up their own enterprise or develop their own entrepreneurial skills, which they can use as an employee or as a person, and how this learning process can be assessed. Currently the “Entrepreneurship Studies” programme is delivered across the Northumbria University and is assessed by using a combination of portfolio, business plan and presentation methods. This includes both formative and summative assessment. The mixture of the entrepreneurial team teaching (including external Guest entrepreneurs) methods approach provides insight into a learning process of entrepreneurship education by collecting data from the students, using qualitative and quantitative methods, allowing reflecting on their learning process. The two main studies conducted in two different schools (Business School, School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences) at Northumbria that show the students’ learning experience involving their past experience, gained knowledge from existing experience, actively seeking learning opportunities, learning by doing, learning for purpose, improving and reflecting upon experiences and building up confidence to transfer learning skills into knowledge. They all agreed that the entrepreneurial skills gained from this programme are transferable to any future working environment. This illustrates for educators that entrepreneurial teaching team and its values, skills and methods are crucial factors in making the success of students’ entrepreneurial learning.
