What role does your faith in students’ learning play in how you approach the classroom? Welcome to an online workshop with Colin Jones to discuss, debate and examine just that.
Entrepreneurship education is not immune to the science of learning. There are many things educators can do to support and suppress their students’ learning. This workshop taps into the science of learning literature around schema development, cognitive load theory, generative learning and cognitive apprenticeships to ask the following question; what mix of instructional strategies, authentic learning opportunities and reflection are required to support learning in the context of entrepreneurship education? The session will provocatively offer attendees the opportunity to self-audit the nature of their current practice, and discuss the topics covered in a collegial atmosphere.
The instructor of the workshop is Colin Jones, USQ, Australia. Following a diverse and exciting journey as an entrepreneur, Colin has dedicated his research towards entrepreneurship education. Most recently, Colin published “How to Teach Entrepreneurship” — an effort to provide educators around the globe a cohesive pedagogical framework for all things entrepreneurship. In Colin’s role as Associate Professor of Academic Development at USQ, Colin continues to publish, speak and think on all things entrepreneurship education.

The workshop will be moderated by Mats Westerberg, LTU. Mats has dedicated much of his scholarly efforts to push the needle on our understanding of entrepreneurship education and its interplay with the many diverse stakeholders that surround it; universities included. More recently, Mats’ research explores the role of entrepreneurship itself in the broader education system. Currently, Mats is a professor at LTU and leads the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning.
