The first meeting within the Enter CBL project - Boosting Entrepreneurial Mindset of Students with Challenge-Based Learning

The first inaugural meeting of the ENTER-CBL project partners took place at the WSB University as part of the Erasmus+ program.

On January 23-24, 2024, the first inaugural meeting of the ENTER-CBL project partners took place at the WSB University as part of the Erasmus+ program. The universities involved in the partnership are Romanian American University, Polytechnic of Porto, Businet and Istanbul Aydin University.

During the two-day meeting, key aspects of the project implementation were discussed and workshops on the implementation of the Challenge Based Learning methodology were conducted with the participation of international students from the WSB University. The ENTER-CBL project aims to develop a modern teaching method, Challenge Based Learning, in the field of entrepreneurship education.

In the first stage of the project implementation, materials containing information about the methodology, scope and best practices related to Challenge Based Learning will be developed and published on a special platform. This platform will serve as a hub where teachers can find guidelines and ideas to use in the classroom. Training sessions will also be organized for teachers interested in implementing the Challenge Based Learning methodology.

In the next phase, a course program called NextGen Entrepreneurs will be developed for students from all participating universities. A key element of the course will be the design of business models based on sustainable development goals. The course will be based on the Challenge Based Learning methodology with the main objective of fostering entrepreneurial thinking among students.

After piloting the course, a detailed analysis and evaluation will be conducted among the participants to implement necessary changes and improvements to ensure that the course meets the needs of both students and faculty. Throughout the project implementation, online and face-to-face dissemination activities will be carried out during dedicated project events.

The project implementation will contribute to the dissemination of the Challenge Based Learning teaching method among teachers of entrepreneurship courses, providing them with tools to implement it effectively and valuably.
