Comparing Online and Physical Social Entrepreneurship Training: Lessons Learned moving Online

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

With soft skills such as networking, groupwork and team building being key
aspects of entrepreneurship education, the Covid-19 pandemic arguably has
had a larger impact than on many other subject areas by the need to switch
online. Having run a four day, fully immersive Enterprise School for social
enterprise off campus for many years, the Covid-19 pandemic saw a need to
move online with a danger of these key aspects being lost. By using the more
familiar local area, spreading out the time between sessions and increasing
the interactions with guest mentors we were able to mitigate for some of these
issues. This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of moving
online with qualitative feedback from students and staff including some
unexpected benefits such as improved accessibility for some students.
