Best Practices in Entrepreneurship Education

Dialogues - Entrepreneurship Education - webpost pre-event

Latest Posts

Entrepreneurship has become a favourite topic to be included in school, college and university curricula. It is now considered a vital skill in the 21st century. Many graduates aspire to be entrepreneurs as well, looking up to many known successful serial entrepreneurs as role models. Clearly, there is a demand.

However, there is no clear understanding or standard for the teaching or imparting of such skills or competencies within an educational context. Efforts have largely been trial and error, without a clear pedagogy or methodology.

Join this webinar on 25 July 2024 at 3.00pm (GMT +8), where we bring together educators in the field who will discuss what works and what does not. Can entrepreneurship be taught at all? Is it for all students or only a chosen few? How do they measure the success of their efforts? It is time to ask hard questions on this soft topic.

This event is organised in partnership with Singapore Education Consulting Group (SECG).

 
This event is in a virtual format — you may participate online via Zoom.
