EICAA empowers Entrepreneurship Education Workshop at the UIIN Conference
EICAA Partner Szabolcs Prónay attended the UIIN Conference from 9 to 11 May 2023 in Budapest and presented the Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial Competences Assessment Alliance (EICAA) project and the Digital Platform. Most of the audience at the conference were from universities who were dedicated to foster entrepreneurship education. The EICAA Digital Platform aims to enable educators to assess and develop entrepreneurial competences by providing personalized learning activities to address competency gaps. While the EntreComp Framework was discussed in various presentations, the EICAA Competence Framework and the Competence Monitor raised the curiosity of the audience.
The goal of the workshop on EICAA at the UIIN Conference was to introduce participants to the broad conceptional understanding of entrepreneurship education. This conceptual framework, represented by EntreComp, forms the foundation upon which the Digital Platform is built. By aligning with this comprehensive framework, EICAA ensures a holistic approach to entrepreneurial skill development. Through a live presentation, participants actively engage in a self-assessment exercise, gaining firsthand knowledge of the platform’s features and functionalities. Inspired by their personal engagement with the EICAA Digital Platform, participants are invited to envision their own use case scenarios for deploying the platform in their respective educational context. Facilitated group work encourages collaboration and knowledge sharing, enabling participants to explore diverse applications of the EICAA Digital Platform. The workshop emphasized the added value of the Digital Platform regarding entrepreneurship education. By leveraging the platform’s capabilities, educators can foster entrepreneurial skills more effectively and efficiently.
In addition to the content-related objectives of workshops, EICAA aims to expand the user base of the platform across the European Union and beyond. By showcasing the benefits of the platform, EICAA seeks to attract more educators to utilize the platform in their entrepreneurship education approaches. Through collaboration and knowledge exchange, the project has the chance to reach a wider audience and make a significant impact on entrepreneurial competences in many educational settings.
The UIIN Conference provided the EICAA team with valuable and helpful feedback on the project and the Digital Platform. We are currently in the home stretch and are looking forward to expanding and presenting our final steps at further conferences.
