WHAT IS ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION?

Entrepreneurship education researcher Kari Ristimäki (2003,Yrittäjyyskasvatus. Yrittäjyyttä ja kasvatusta) has compiled a list of helpful questions for assessing whether teaching constitutes entrepreneurship education.

Please answer the following:

Who
- takes responsibility for the activity?
- generates ideas?
- plans the activity?
- selects the ideas to be implemented?
- strives to reach the goal?
- gains experience?
- takes risks?
- practises collaboration skills?
- rehearses performing?
- practises presenting and justifying his or her arguments?
- takes care of the network?

If the answer to most of these questions is ‘the learner’, the activity may be considered entrepreneurship education.
