A sizable gap exists between the ample demands for (and growing supply of) entrepreneurship education and our understanding of how to best approach the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship. To help close this gap, the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) has identified some of the most important and provocative work on entrepreneurship education over the years, and worked with the authors of this work to produce updated perspectives. The intent is to capture the richest insights and best practices in teaching entrepreneurship, building entrepreneurship curricula, and developing educational programs.
A Practice-Based Approach
Heidi M. Neck, Patricia G. Greene and Candida G. Brush
Teaching Entrepreneurship moves entrepreneurship education from the traditional process view to a practice-based approach and advocates teaching entrepreneurship using a portfolio of practices, which includes play, empathy, creation, experimentation, and reflection. Together these practices help students develop the competency to think and act entrepreneurially in order to create, find, and exploit opportunities of all kinds in a continuously changing and uncertain world. Divided into two parts, the book is written for those educators who want their students to develop a bias for action and who are willing to explore new approaches in their own classrooms. A set of 42 exercises with detailed teaching notes is also included to help educators effectively teach the practices in their curriculum.

After tracing the evolution of entrepreneurship within institutions of higher learning, the authors explore the key elements that constitute a comprehensive entrepreneurship program. Best practices at leading universities and differing kinds of academic environments are highlighted. They examine multiple aspects of program management and infrastructure, including curriculum and degree program development, where entrepreneurship is administratively housed, how it is organized, and approaches to staffing and resource acquisition.

The continuing success of the Asian Miracle relies on an entrepreneurial revolution that has increased the productivity and flexibility of economies across the region. Yet this revolution has largely been necessity-driven, traditional and vulnerable to erosion as the region becomes increasingly prosperous and well educated. How to educate the next wave of entrepreneurs is a pressing Asian question that resonates around the world and is the subject of this volume.
An experienced entrepreneur and educator, Colin Jones has written this book to help entrepreneurship educators pause and reflect upon their students’ learning, and therefore their own responsibilities as educators. He advocates a student-centric way to teach entrepreneurship and to building the curriculum. He shakes up the reader’s thinking and invites discussion on an experiential learning approach, to engage students in learning about entrepreneurship. This book is deliberatively provocative, and awakens another level of thinking on how to teach entrepreneurship. It will be required reading for entrepreneurship educators and those building a university entrepreneurship programme for years to come.
