Train-the-trainer: How to design and plan a course with entrepreneurial and innovation elements


Aalto Ventures Program, supported by Aalto University, a member of the EIT RawMaterials Community, has designed a session for teachers who want to integrate entrepreneurial mindset and skills into their topic specific courses. The main point of the course is to help teachers create a positive student experience that supports learning of the selected entrepreneurial skills and competences and enhances the learning of the discipline specific topics.

In the course, the participants will work on developing an own course in university-specific teams (min: 2participants/university). The course will cover the following topics/ draft schedule:

  • The need for integrated courses: student, industry and university education views.

  • Framing of a course: including innovation and entrepreneurship

  • Home assignment: Entrepreneurial framing of the course

  • Choosing entrepreneurial learning outcomes for the course

  • Creating a course schedule

  • Supporting student teams

  • Teaching staff–co-teaching and using university and ecosystems support.

RIS Hub Greece extends an invitation to all members of the RIS academic community to apply for the training course and assist in creating a new culture that will prepare the next generation of entrepreneur professionals of the Raw Materials Sector.
