The INTRINSIC Sustainable Entrepreneurship Teaching Model

You could either follow the stepwise approach below, or quickly move to the circular teaching model of INTRINSIC without further explanation!

1. In a first step you are invited to reflect on your own authentic philosophical disposition to teaching and develop your own Sustainable Entrepreneurship Teaching Manifesto (inspired by Colin Jones’ book: How to Teach Entrepreneurship)…in the form of: 

  • I believe that e.g. every human should live up to its own full potential …”, 
  • Therefore, I include self-reflection as core element in my teaching…”(you find more examples on some syllogisms on the Teaching Manifesto page). 
  • You are also invited, to reflect on the SDGs and sustainable entrepreneurship skills most relevant for you.
  • Finally you can print your Sustainable Entrepreneurship Teaching Manifesto as a pdf.

  • When you have reflected on your own personal and authentic disposition to teaching, based on the reflection on your own motivations, you can now make a much better use of the Teaching Activities that INTRINSIC is offering in its Teaching Design Tool.
2. In a second step, and as a starting point for involving your students in sustainable entrepreneurship, you could use our 
  • Sustainable Entrepreneurship Learning Manifesto Tool, where students are asked to reflect on the sustainable change they would like to bring to world in the given domain. Students can use the tool individually or as a team, and can print the result as a pdf. This step is meant to give students the opportunity to reflect on their own interests and bring in their own perspective.

6. Sixth, our INTRINSIC Life Science Sustainable Action Tracking Tool allows either 
  • for usage within your courses (you could ask your students to contact sustainable entrepreneurs, and use the tools to reflect on their entrepreneurial journey), 
  • or you can invite Alumni of your University to document their sustainable entrepreneurial activities (which could be innovations, ideas for innovations, projects, products, services or a start-up for providing these). 
    By collecting this information, inspiring examples to be used in lectures and courses will be available, and also the efficiency and validity of INTRINSIC’s teaching approach to sustainable entrepreneurship will be made visible, and could be improved by the given feedback.
