By our Erasmus+ course “Teaching Entrepreneurship in Schools: Experiential approach” we promote including business modelling, design thinking and customer development into the curriculum. The words are fancy indeed, but the work with students based on this approach is much more interactive comparing to teaching business planning which is structured through the chapters of a business plan.
Is this all? Of course not, we visited a coworking space riiba and start-up company Tok Tok furniture. Also, we explored Slovenian capital Ljubljana, enjoyed a small coastal town Izola, go around another coastal town Koper, and have fun on the beach.
First, despite strong promotion of entrepreneurship teaching in Europe there is still lack of material for using directly with students. So we need to develop much more material for students in the future.
Here are some answers teachers gave us: networking, be open minded, flexibility, more ambitions, analysing skills, cracking creativity, courage, patience, organisational skills, energy, capacity to adapt the course to local culture, to put theory into practice, to be more practical, to apply different approaches, business-oriented attitude, be more confident.
