Welcome to the Aurora Entrepreneurialis Teacher Training Course! This course is for teachers, educators, youth workers and likeminded people who are interested in entrepreneurship education. The course is focused on three key themes: 1) entrepreneurial culture in schools, 2) sustainable entrepreneurship in education, and 3) cross-border collaboration.
The project organizes 12 sessions, each session containing recorded lectures with experts, followed by digital seminars. Sometimes there will be some additional materials, like articles or additional videos to watch. You can join the whole course or decide the most interesting seminars for you.
The first online lectures and interactive seminar will be on 9th October at 13:30-14:30 CEST (14:30-15:30 EEST) with Mats Westerberg from Luleå Technical University, who focuses on entrepreneurial competencies. He will be introducing the EntreComp and GreenComp frameworks as well as CRITIC (Courage, Responsibility, Initiative, Tolerance for Ambiguity, Interactivity and ability to cooperate, and Creativity). The seminar will be about how to apply and include entrepreneurial competencies in everyday learning activities in the classroom.
The course uses a flipped-classroom style of learning, with an interactive seminar. Therefore, it is very important that you watch or listen to the lectures before the seminar. We will provide the lectures well in advance so that you will have time to fit it into your schedules.
We hope that the course will bring you all a lot of new ideas, inspiration, and practical advice! If you have any questions, requests, or suggestions for future speakers, feel free to get in touch.
