We also want to take this opportunity to lay out some of our thinking about the conference and how the various scenarios may play out.
- Our preferred scenario, and the one we are actively planning for, is that travel within Australia and New Zealand will be possible by January-February 2022, and possible from other countries. In that case, the conference will essentially be face-to-face in Melbourne, though we will allow some individuals to participate via Zoom.
- At the other extreme, we may all still be in lockdown. If that is the case, we are ready to revert to a fully online conference if needed.
- There may also be intermediate scenarios that we will deal with as they arise.
But, regardless of which scenario eventuates, we strongly suggest that you take a ‘real option’ approach to the conference – physical attendance. When we open the conference registration in late November, please register. It is important to us because we (ACERE) need to have an idea of how many people are coming for catering and other arrangement purpose.

How do you create a hybrid/HyFlex learning environment to teach the “contact sport” of entrepreneurship?
This year the ACERE 2022 Entrepreneurship Educator’s Forum is inviting you to join us in discussion, exploration and experiential learning to explore, share and build on what we know of the digital world for entrepreneurship education, its practice, theory & scholarship.
Beside this special focus, the Entrepreneurship Educator’s Forum also welcomes submissions on the other “hot topics” and themes linked to Entrepreneurship Education (for example, entrepreneurship education in primary and secondary schools, entrepreneurship education platforms, or partnerships to drive entrepreneurship education).
When: Tuesday, 8 February 2022
Where: Hybrid Mode – On location at Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne) and online for those who cannot travel.
The main theme of the ACERE Entrepreneurship Educator’s Forum is designed to give teachers, practitioners, and students of entrepreneurship education the opportunity to focus collectively and individually on how “the contact sport” that is entrepreneurship can, is and should be taught in the hybrid/HyFlex learning environment.
- Hear from successful entrepreneurship educators in the online space – how did they make it happen?
- Gain insights into the latest teaching and learning theory and practice for online entrepreneurship education – what could you be doing?
- Understand and discuss the role of scholarship in online entrepreneurship education – what is making a difference?
