Educator Workshop: Why and how your faith in students’ learning matters?

What role does your faith in students’ learning play in how you approach the classroom? Welcome to an online workshop with Colin Jones to discuss, debate and examine just that.

Entrepreneurship education is not immune to the science of learning. There are many things educators can do to support their students’ learning. This workshop taps into the science of learning literature around schema development, cognitive load theory, generative learning and cognitive apprenticeships to ask the following question; what mix of instructional strategies, authentic learning opportunities and reflection are required to support learning in the context of entrepreneurship education? The session will provocatively offer attendees the opportunity to self-audit the nature of their current practice, and discuss the topics covered in a collegial atmosphere.
