Reviews

Contributed by entrepreneurship, business, management, and economics researchers from Europe, Ghana, the US, and Brazil, the 14 chapters in this volume consider evidence for best practices in the construction and delivery of entrepreneurship education around the world, as well as success stories and the future direction of the field. They address its impact on student communities, with discussion of a learning-based approach, drivers of entrepreneurial intentions, determinants of entrepreneurial spirit, and the impact of UK entrepreneurship education on the entrepreneurial actions of Russian students; new pedagogical practices, including techniques that affect the way students think about entrepreneurship, creating meaningful entrepreneurial practice, the impact of an experiential visual-based learning pedagogy, entrepreneurial education for business executives, and constructivist teaching; and new interventions to engage with the entrepreneurship education agenda, such as summer academies, enterprise education in vocational education, a sandwich-year placement scheme, and an inclusive and accessible entrepreneurship education initiative. -- Annotation (c)2017 Ringgold Inc. * (protoview.com) *
