The University of Antwerp’s Department of Education is organising a webinar on entrepreneurship in higher education on 7 May 2021, 11 am to 1 pm (CET). The central question of the webinar is: How do you integrate inspirational entrepreneurship into the classroom? This online webinar aims to bring together lecturers, education support staff members and policy officers from different higher education institutions.
You will be inspired by 3 good practices of entrepreneurship in the classroom. Lecturers from the University of Antwerp will give two presentations. The other good practice will be presented by a lecturer from the University of Bremen, YUFE-partner.
Discover how entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship among engineering students can be stimulated by the creation of an immersive entrepreneurial environment. Find out how the number of students in venture creation courses can be scaled and how student-centred approaches and competence-based learning environments enable students to develop entrepreneurial competences.
Please confirm your participation before 5 May by completing this form. In the week of 3 May you will receive a reminder with the link to the webinar and the programme.
