The objective of this strategic partnership is to develop a study module on social entrepreneurship with a scope of up to 15 ECTS. The format of delivery will be flexible (both online and blended learning modes) in order to address different target groups.
In terms of content, the project will adapt and complement existing learning resources, both national and European, and provide new materials derived from the partners’ local contexts. In addition, experiences made during development and pilot implementation will feed into a guidance report for teaching staff.
The project is addressed to an interdisciplinary target group of educators, students and young professionals in the fields of economics, business administration, geography, agriculture, regional development, urban/landscape planning.
The following activities will be a carried out:
(1) Development of online course materials on social entrepreneurship theory, methods, tools and case studies as open educational resources
(2) Implementation of blended learning activities on the subject of social entrepreneurship in combination with local workshops organised alternately by three of the consortium partners
(3) Preparation of a guidance report for teachers interested in integrating social entrepreneurship into their courses. The project follows the methodical approach of a pedagogical action research cycle: the course will be repeated three times and accompanied by profound observation and evaluation and continuous improvement, finally leading to a stable and sustainable model.
