Symposium on Entrepreneurship Education in Africa: From Theory to Practice

September 17 @ 14h30 - September 18 @ 18h30 CEST

About this event

Although many universities in the developed world embrace entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education, African universities have not fully integrated this discipline as a significant part of their curriculum. Those that have, still employ traditional and theoretical pedagogies. According to Kabongo and Okpara (2010), entrepreneurship education in Africa remains focused on lecturing. Thus, the purpose of this Symposium is to engage in a robust dialogue to enhance entrepreneurship education in Africa, to help make it more practical and relevant. The Symposium explores entrepreneurship pedagogies that would enhance student engagement and effectiveness in the classroom. It also explores the role of technologies and blended entrepreneurship education, including virtual formats and the use of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).

FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE: To explore what we teach, how we teach it, and how we integrate practical lessons into our teaching.

GOALS : Strengthening entrepreneurship education in Africa, and grow more informed and better prepared entrepreneurs for the global market.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Entrepreneurship Educators/Faculty, Students, Policymakers, Entrepreneurs.
