The training week covers four different thematic blocks. The final day equips participants with the skills, experience and assessment tools needed to apply their knowledge, e.g. by implementing a newly designed course into the home institutions curriculum:
Overview of Training Modules:
Day 1: Prepare to Teach
Day 2: Entrepreneurial mindset development - Stretching perspectives
Day 3: Creativity and innovation
Day 4: Supporting High Impact Entrepreneurship
Day 5: The Culture Context of Entrepreneurship
In the afternoons, participants can choose between "Learning in Practice" (LiP) and "Design and Develop new approaches" (D&D).
LiP is your opportunity to teach entrepreneurship in real-life environments! These may include:
D&D targets experienced educators interested in designing and developing novel approaches in terms of “how” to teach creativity, “how” to teach innovation, “how” to develop innovative teaching materials, and “how” to assess related learning outcomes. Participants will have the unique opportunity to conceptualize and prototype these in small interdisciplinary teams.
Subsequent to the afternoon activities, reflection exercises to share and review observations and impressions of the day take place. Mentored by experienced trainers and coaches, participants have enough headspace to evaluate opportunities for joined programmes and cross-institutional staff exchange.
An exclusive event package containing dinner and entertainment will round up the training programme.

Aberdeen – The Entrepreneurial city that constantly reinvents itself
In the 1960’s Aberdeen was a city built mainly around fishing and agriculture, the discovery of North-sea oil and gas changed the orientation of the city through to become the ‘Oil capital of Europe’ and now has a focus on becoming an Energy Capital for Europe. This has provided a fertile ground for start-ups, many who have become global, having initially served the oil and gas sector and then expanding into other markets.
The University of Aberdeen is currently home for the Scottish Programme for Entrepreneurship (Education) project which was launched in 2010 to create synergy between entrepreneurship education and Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence. In 2011, Intergenerational Fairness was adopted as an innovative context for exploring and supporting entrepreneurship education into diverse disciplines.
Aberdeen is a beautiful city, with a magnificent beach, the second largest granite building in Europe and easy access to beautiful countryside, excellent golf courses, nature reserves, museums, castles and of course superb whisky. We look forward to welcoming you to the Coneeect Training Week in Aberdeen from 21-25 July 2014.
