TEACHERS and HEI MANAGEMENT

June 15, 2014 - teachers / Uncategorized

Professors, Carrier Center leaders & helpers – all academic practitioners – how to deliver interdisciplinary, entrepreneurial education with innovative teaching models – Let us show you how we think it can be done!

We believe all (right down to the last secretary) dealing with a student at a university should know what is entrepreneurship and how the entrepreneurship spirit can be boosted with the right methods already during the studies. Let us show you how we think it can be done!

We will be conducting teacher trainings at each of the four university partners from October 2014 to January 2015. Read more below or download the full IDEATE Teacher Training (includes day by day programme) Brochure.
