The Transformation of Creativity in Entrepreneurial Learning in Teacher Education: A Critical Reflection
Ehrlin, Anna; Insulander, Eva; Sandberg, Anette
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v41 n6 Article 3 p35-51 Jun 2016
The purpose of this study is to examine how students on a teacher education programme interpret entrepreneurial learning. The study was performed in Sweden, based on a design theoretical and multimodal perspective on learning and communication which provides the basis for how we understand learning processes in early teacher education. The sample consists of course literature, teachers' PowerPoint presentations and handouts, and narrative texts written by students. The meaning given to entrepreneurial learning is presented from the analysis of the setting, in the teaching materials and the transformation in the students' texts. We conclude that entrepreneurial learning seeks to challenge traditional, authoritarian ways of teaching. However, it appears to be necessary in order to develop entrepreneurial abilities. There is a difficulty in finding a balance between control and freedom.
