CEEN 2015 Entrepreneurship Educators Module

CEEN 2015 Entrepreneurship Educators Module

06 February, 2015

The first workshop for the 2015 CEEN Entrepreneurship Educators Module took place at the beginning of February in Dublin City University.  This module is Ireland's first programme dedicated to embedding entrepreneurship within the HEI curriculum. The participants were greeted on the day by DCU president, Professor Brian MacCraith, who spoke of the importance of entrepreneurial thinking in the education system.
The module aims to support educators embed entrepreneurship teaching and learning within their teaching and throughout their institution. The module was piloted in 2013/14 under ACE (Accelerated Campus Entrepreneurship) and funded by the HEA. Since the pilot, ACE was reformed as CEEN (Campus Entrepreneurship Enterprise Network) and the module has since been approved as a linked module for the LIN Post Graduate Diploma for Academic Professional Development (http://www.lin.ie).
This year’s participants hail from a range of institutes across Ireland including ITT, LIT, IADT, DCU, GMIT, DKIT and CIT.  With a group assignment as the first task, online communication across the country will certainly be a key factor for project success!
Cork Institute of Technology have three staff members taking part in the module this year.  Isabel Rossiter, Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence, Lisa Murphy, Department of management and Enterprise, Chris Gibbons, Sustainable Energy are all attending with the aim of incorporating entrepreneurship and the various learning in to their respective disciplines in CIT.
