All students should have the same opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills, which is why this must be integrated into education. To achieve that we need more educators to integrate entrepreneurship into their teaching.
In this webinar IVA’s Entrepreneurship Academy invites you to meet Kalle Airo, Co-director & Co-founder of Aalto Ventures Program at Aalto University in Finland. Airo has helped educators in Aalto and all around the world to successfully add entrepreneurial elements to their teaching.
At Aalto University the belief is that all students benefit from developing an entrepreneurial mindset and skills, regardless of which career path they choose. These skills should be taught as a natural aspect of their education, throughout a programme or in an individual course, workshop or lecture to provide an overview of entrepreneurial themes.
Airo will share his experience of working with different ways of teaching entrepreneurship and will answer questions, including the following:
- How can entrepreneurship be integrated into education in general?
- Which tools can be used to teach entrepreneurship? For example, how does the Yoop tool work?
- Which methods will provide the best learning experience for students?
- What are the success factors of the Aalto Ventures Program?
During the webinar you will be able to ask Airo questions via our chat function. You can also influence the content of the webinar by submitting your questions in advance using this form.
The webinar is the second in a series of talks on entrepreneurship education where we provide inspiration, foster new ideas and share experiences of effective education models nationally and internationally, primarily aimed at entrepreneurship educators at the university level and teachers with an interest in integrating entrepreneurship into their courses or programmes.
The moderator is Maddy Savage, a former BBC staff journalist in London. She has a background of reporting for the UK and global TV news shows and has anchored BBC World Service radio programs reaching 50 million people a week.
