Led by Connie Hancock, Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, the
workshop at the Riverside Innovation Centre (RIC) and was a major
step towards embedding entrepreneurship in the programmes
delivered throughout the Faculty of Health and Social Care. A range
of delivery and assessment methodologies were discussed, teaching
and learning experiences shared and practices analysed.
The workshop, facilitated by the Business School, was a forum for
exchanging ideas in the light of new curriculum developments. This
event is the first of many cross institutional workshops supporting
the embedding of entrepreneurship. Staff attending discussed
their commitment to supporting students to recognise opportunity,
exercise their creativity, create sustainable solutions, take calculated
risk, and participate in the rewards of entrepreneurial endeavours.
Connie Hancock said: “The event demonstrated how committed
academic staff are to maintaining a culture that values and
nurtures innovation, creative thinking, emotional intelligence,
resourcefulness, persistence and an entrepreneurial mind-set.”
