Teach the teacher workshops
Workshops are tailored to give teachers an overview of different methods and pedagogical tools for teaching entrepreneurship. The Academy believes that entrepreneurship can most efficiently be taught by using a mix of different methods including a practical dimension, interdisciplinary teaching, student participation and an international dimension. The workshops introduce these methods and how the methods may be applied whilst securing a high theoretical and academic level.
Morning Entrepreneurial Education Encounters
These are regular morning meetings where teachers and entrepreneurs can meet for breakfast, presentations, networking, discussion, and reflection.
Entrepreneurship education is the key word, and the purpose is for the participants to become inspired for their own teaching, and to meet other entrepreneurship enthusiasts.
In order for teachers to develop their competencies further, Oresund Entrepreneurship Academy provides assistance concerning course outlines, curriculum, literature, study materials, development of the courses and various tools within pedagogical teaching methods.
The Academy offers access to a wide network of people involved in entrepreneurship teaching as well as established entrepreneurs. In this network contacts can be made with people from both business and academia, regional as well as international.
The Academy funds development of entrepreneurship courses based at universities in the Oresund Region and gives financial support to courses in their primary phases as well as support to the applicants in the form of knowledge, network and practical aid during the application process. The projects must involve partners from both Denmark and Sweden.
Among the ways in which Oresund Entrepreneurship Academy seeks to inspire and promote best practice within entrepreneurship teaching is to give educators and other university staff the opportunity of participating in study excursions to leading universities, entrepreneurship academies and organizations around the world.
