Welcome! The purpose of this UNIPS module is to guide you in planning and developing your courses with an entrepreneurial focus. This course is aimed for university teachers, doctoral students, and all the academic personnel with teaching duties and an interest in teaching and learning.

You can study all of the materials independently. This module is also available for guided study (1 ECTS credit); for this option, please contact your own university and see the further instructions at the end of the module.

Self-study materials

Self-study means that you watch the videos and other materials independently. You can also take the tests and complete the assignments that interest you the most. You can do this at any time and in any order.

The self-study assignments are:

  • Test your competences in entrepreneurship education (MTEE test).
