Innovations in Entrepreneurship Assessment
10th May 2017
This seminar will run as part of the pre-conference/professional workshop day for the 3e ECSB Entrepreneurship Education conference hosted by CIT in May 2017. See www.3e2017.org for more information on the conference. The overall theme for the conference is : Building for the Future – Entrepreneurship Education, Training and Policy, and one of the sub themes for the conference is ‘innovations in assessment’ . This workshop is designed to surface key issues and share experiences regarding assessment within formal entrepreneurship education programmes. The rationale and content of this workshop is practitioner led and based around the NEAR research findings.Recent entrepreneurship education literature notes that assessment practice is an important consideration and that it has been somewhat neglected by researchers. It varies between: forms of entrepreneurship education (about, for, through and embedded); the theme of the programme or module (e.g. food entrepreneurship, creative entrepreneurship); the learning outcomes desired, the underlying disciplinary stance (even between disciplines); and, the educational philosophy applied by the educator. To understand assessment practice in entrepreneurship, we need to observe actual practice through empirical research and do so in a comprehensive way to appreciate the different forms and types that entrepreneurship education might take. This workshop will allow participants to explore innovative assessment methods for the various forms of entrepreneurship education relevant to their teaching. Participants are encouraged to complete a short pre-session survey to allow the facilitators tailor the practical part of the session around the specific entrepreneurship assessment needs of the participant group on the day.
