Applying a synergistic learning approach to entrepreneurship learning
This article develops our understanding of how entrepreneurship may be enhanced in existing entrepreneurs and developed in nascent entrepreneurs. It describes the authors’ exploration in the design, development and evaluation of a new programme to create opportunities for learning entrepreneurship capacities. A tripartite approach was taken, bringing together nascent entrepreneurs (undergraduate students), existing entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship facilitators. The programme was delivered using a synergistic learning approach and participatory methods in which all participants were co-learners in a collaborative, peer-learning environment. This article describes the action research approach to the exploration of entrepreneurship education androgogy and contributes to the growing body of literature in entrepreneurship education. It provides insights into how entrepreneurship education can be delivered in innovative and effective ways that mirror the ‘real world’ experience of existing and nascent entrepreneurs. It also provides insights into the nature and use of a synergistic learning approach within an entrepreneurship education context.

Abstract

This article develops our understanding of how entrepreneurship may be enhanced in existing entrepreneurs and developed in nascent entrepreneurs. It describes the authors’ exploration in the design, development and evaluation of a new programme to create opportunities for learning entrepreneurship capacities. A tripartite approach was taken, bringing together nascent entrepreneurs (undergraduate students), existing entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship facilitators. The programme was delivered using a synergistic learning approach and participatory methods in which all participants were co-learners in a collaborative, peer-learning environment. This article describes the action research approach to the exploration of entrepreneurship education androgogy and contributes to the growing body of literature in entrepreneurship education. It provides insights into how entrepreneurship education can be delivered in innovative and effective ways that mirror the ‘real world’ experience of existing and nascent entrepreneurs. It also provides insights into the nature and use of a synergistic learning approach within an entrepreneurship education context.
