Learning Based on "Entrepreneurial Volunteering": Using Enterprise Education to Explore Social Responsibility
Clarke, Julia; Underwood, Sarah
Industry and Higher Education, v25 n6 p461-467 Dec 2011
This article presents a case study of how a business school has developed enterprise education to incorporate ethics and social responsibility. The authors describe the process of developing volunteering opportunities and embedding them in the curriculum, and outline the underlying pedagogy. They describe how existing approaches to project-based and problem-based learning may be applied to the different stages of learning and teaching development in enterprise, ethics and volunteering education. Finally, they offer their own adaptation of these frameworks to create an entrepreneurial volunteering-based learning, whereby student volunteering opportunities are embedded into enterprise education with a clear disciplinary knowledge base and explicit and assessed learning outcomes in both skills and knowledge. (Contains 4 tables, 2 figures and 2 notes.)
