Engage contributes to a new book by sharing Norwegian entrepreneurship practices in three chapters highlighting the CERN Screening Week, the Blast off Week at Nord and the Venture Creation Program at NTNU.
The new book “Innovation in Global Entrepreneurship Education: Teaching Entrepreneurship in Practice” is edited by Heidi M Neck from Babson College (US) and visiting Professor at Engage together with Yipeng Liu from University of Reading (UK) and consists of three parts: Building bridges across the university for entrepreneurship; Teaching and learning entrepreneurship; The impact of entrepreneurship education and new directions.
The book illustrates the challenges faced by educators and creative methods for tackling them, offering useful insights in an international comparison. Sharing lessons and best practices enables a juxtaposing and leveraging of experiences from different parts of the world rather than a one size fits all approach.
