Call for submissions of your best workshops or Ted talk style presentations: show and tell!
What is next for entrepreneurship and education? If you are at the forefront and making a difference in this space, come and facilitate your best workshop (50 minutes) or short `show and tell` presentation at the ACERE Entrepreneurship Educator’s Forum 2020 on Tuesday February 4 2020 at Flinders University in Adelaide.
This one-day forum aims to be the interactive personal development platform for academics, pracademics and industry representatives at the intersection of entrepreneurship and education. Participants may be interested in exchange of experiential knowledge, tools, co-creation and experiencing innovative learning approaches.
Creating successful startups is no longer the sole aim of entrepreneurial education programs. Increasingly entrepreneurship education serves multiple purposes, from building innovation competencies and skills to supporting job readiness of graduates, in higher education and beyond. Unlike conventional academic research presentations, successful submissions to this forum will be in the form of either:
- 50 minutes experiential workshop. Learning by doing: Facilitate your best workshop for participants (you run the workshop) and share your insights.
- Ted-talk style 10 minutes short presentation and 5 minutes Q&A
Both formats practice show, don’t just tell. This year’s forum will provide an opportunity for educators to share their innovative workshop practice in four themes:
- Education 4.0, how humans and technology are aligned to enable new learning possibilities like individualised learning, self-directed/project based; edutech/data driven; new assessment models; the role of students in developing the curriculum and the facilitating role of the teacher?
- Job readiness: e.g. the use of innovation competencies/skills, micro credentials or other tools to support innovative experiential learning, creating new pathways for alignment of industry experience (tacit knowledge) and knowledge transfer?
- Innovative models/tools for startup (pre-) acceleration?
- Innovative models/tools for social enterprise development?
Please join us to share your experience with embedding smaller ‘plug-and-play’ or ‘mix-n-match’ modules within your teaching and/or other innovative pedagogical practices.
