Training teaching faculty is a key activity for Engage. Engage invites faculty from different disciplines to various workshops and seminars on teaching methods relevant to developing entrepreneurial skills and mindsets among students. We thereby seek to engage university teachers to try out action-based teaching methods where students learn through an experiential learning pedagogy.
During 2017, we have organized several focused workshops for university lecturers. The response has been good, and the workshops have engaged participants from different disciplines and levels. The workshops have dealt with a variety of relevant topics such as student-active learning methods and learning in groups, case-based teaching of entrepreneurship and Design Thinking. We also organized the workshop “How to give a good first impression in the classroom” about involving students from the very beginning of the class.
