Creating Entrepreneurial Campuses
As part of its contribution to this important subject, QAA Scotland commissioned a think piece entitled Creating Entrepreneurial Campuses, along with a set of case studies.
This paper built directly on the Enterprise and entrepreneurship guidance publication produced by QAA in 2012.
The paper sought to explore the challenges of enterprise and entrepreneurial education for higher education institutions. These included challenging existing pedagogies for entrepreneurial education and the effects this had on assessment and staff development. Where entrepreneurial education was situated in HEIs and who delivered was also explored. The importance of engaging the whole institution and its campus, involving the entire student experience, in creating opportunities for the development of enterprise and entrepreneurial skills was one of the key messages developed in the paper.
The paper was written by Professor Colin Mason, Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow. Professor Allan Gibbs, Emeritus Professor, University of Durham provided the foreword. The paper is complemented by a set of case studies which can be found below.
