Chapter 12: Entrepreneurship education as perspective transformation

Colin Jones and Harry Matlay


This chapters calls for greater concern to be given to the process of transformational learning in entrepreneurship education, drawing upon the seminal works of Mezirow to highlight the challenges of seeking transformative learning outcomes in entrepreneurship education. Further, this chapter reconceptualises the notion of constructive alignment to context of entrepreneurship education where experiential learning is commonly used, increasingly with the process of heutagogy. The chapter concludes with consideration of the increasing importance of purpose, choice and altered educator and student roles in entrepreneurship education. Ultimately, this chapter draws attention to those factors that ultimately underpin the possibility of transformational learning in our domain of education.
