Teaching entrepreneurship – an instructor’s perspective
This article, co-written by Professor David Kirby and Simon Gifford, complements earlier articles on the purpose of entrepreneurial education and whether it can be taught. Here we focus on how it can be taught and the effectiveness of different types of teaching. It outlines the key elements required for teaching “for” entrepreneurship, the skills and expertise required by the teacher, the teaching context and what teachers can do to overcome some of the constraints on provision.
