The future direction of Enterprise Education: 2018 and beyond

Wednesday May 9th 2018, 10am – 4pm

Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge CB1 1PT

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on current best practice and the likely future direction of enterprise and entrepreneurship education
  • Gain new ideas related to technology, pedagogy and putting ideas into practice
  • Understand how the updated QAA Guidelines relate to future practice
  • Hear first-hand from the experts to help shape the future direction of Enterprise Education
  • Network with enterprise educators and specialists from other universities and the private sector.


This Enterprise Exchange event will explore how University enterprise education can build on current best practice to meet the challenge of future needs. There will be three sub themes, pedagogy, practice (co-curricular) and technology: these will run throughout the day. This will be an active day with the focus on discussion, led by key insights from leaders in different aspects of enterprise education.

Participants will get to know each other through the first activity while identifying what is currently perceived as ‘best practice’ under our three themes. Reviewing your thoughts, the three first speakers will set the scene for each theme before we divide into the three ‘themed’ groups to focus on each area and the possibilities for Enterprise Education, now and in the future.

After lunch we will open with a look at the context set by the new QAA guidelines. What will their impact be on future curriculum development?  This includes an overview followed by a question and answer panel comprising speakers from the themed sessions, with the final task to shape three action points under each of the three themes.

Speakers and facilitators include

  • Professor Lynn Martin and Marcia Baldry from Anglia Ruskin (welcome to the day!)
  • Professor Andy Penaluna, University of Wales Trinity Saint David
  • Professor Bruce Wood, Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Jonathon Powell, Lancaster University
  • Dr Kelly Smith, Coventry University
