Summary

This EEUK Enterprise Exchange event, delivered in partnership with the Open University, will focus on scholarship of teaching and learning and how enterprise education can benefit from it. There will be breakout sessions for delegates to contribute to discussions and develop their own ideas.

Scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is research into teaching, learning and the curriculum. In the Open University’s Faculty of Business and Law, projects are supported by SCiLAB, the Centre for Innovation in Legal and Business Education. This event will draw on scholarship projects from the Open University Business School to illustrate the School’s evidence-based approach to enterprise education, including (1) reasons for doing scholarship work and creating impact and (2) using evidence from SoTL to inform our educational practice. These examples aim to help delegates who are planning to create and evaluate new enterprise education materials or bid for funding from the Enterprise Education and Research Project Fund (EERPF) to reflect on what they would like to do and why and how they could proceed. We will discuss the process of planning and executing a scholarship project, including research questions, data and methods, and the creation of impact.
