Share Entrepreneurship Education Seminar: Facilitating Entrepreneurial Capability in Higher Education

Event Details

“Entrepreneurship education refers to activities aimed at developing enterprising or entrepreneurial people and increasing their understanding and knowledge about entrepreneurship and enterprise” (Heinonen and Poikkijoki, 2005). Entrepreneurship education equips students with the additional knowledge, attributes and capabilities required to apply these abilities in the context of setting up a new venture or business, to work as an entrepreneurial employee and to be an entrepreneurial member of society. This seminar addresses the transition from college to work in a specific entrepreneurial context. This interactive seminar will explore how we can develop the entrepreneurial mindset in our teaching; the learning opportunities for enterprise that are available beyond the taught learning environment, and also explore how peer learning in a multidisciplinary setting can enhance the enterprise learning experience.

Organiser

Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence, Cork Institute of Technology

The Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence was established by Cork Institute of Technology in 2013 to support entrepreneurship in all its forms. The Hincks Centre is Ireland’s first Centre of Entrepreneurship Excellence.  In establishing this centre, CIT is extending its long-standing, strong commitment to supporting the entrepreneurship drive at regional and national level. CIT intends to address a gap in Ireland’s current ability to train and provide support to all stakeholder groups who support and nurture entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship Teaching and Learning at CIT was awarded the prestigious 2018 DELTA (Disciplinary Excellence in Learning, Teaching and Assessment) award by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. The Hincks Centre is an integral part of CIT’s ACE group (Accelerating Campus Entrepreneurship) that won the award.
