Webinar about online education for entrepreneurship - the unexplored possibilities
This webinar about online education and entrepreneurship will strengthen your entrepreneurial learning space and startup service offers. The webinar is targeted teachers, education managers and other persons working in the field at the higher education institutions.
Are you interested in the possibilities of digital education, but in doubt when it comes to the value your students will achieve from it? Do you see the potential but lack the specific inspiration and new tools to fully realise it in your teaching? Do you miss knowledge and research about the value, evidence and effects?
Now you can sign up (at the bottom of the page) for a two-hour webinar arranged by the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship. The webinar focuses on competence development and education within online entrepreneurship. The corona crisis very much emphasises the need for Ed-Tech as well as for entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurship programmes. Therefore the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship has put together a webinar with relevant topics and interesting presenters.
This webinar will look into the possibilities, challenges and tools, the interaction with the students, and how to best organise digital entrepreneurship education. It will moreover discuss how to work with entrepreneurial competences, entrepreneurial mindset, startup ideas, pitching and hackatons in a digital universe, what the gains and pains are, and not least what 'the unexplored possibilities' are.
You will learn how your colleagues at the higher education institutions have organised their teaching and extended their learning spaces, but also how they have managed both technical and teaching challenges in the process of replacing workshops, class teaching, seminars and guidance by digital formats.
The webinar will contain presentations and knowledge from the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship, relevant cases from colleagues from higher education institutions as well as inspiration from abroad about how to ensure value and engagement and how to develop new possibilities in the digital education universe.
