سال گذشته جهت آشنایی بیشتر با دوره‌های کارآفرینی و نحوه تدریس این دوره‌ها در کلاس پروفسور باب همیلتون شرکت کردم. دوره بسیار مفیدی بود و مطالب آموزنده‌ای ارائه شد. با توجه به اینکه این دوره برای دانشجویان آنرز (مقطعی بین لیسانس و ارشد) ارائه می‌شد نحوه تدریس، استفاده از بهترین و گاها جدیدترین مقالات منتشر شده در ژورنالهای معتبر بود.

بخشی از ساختار، اهداف و منابع مورد استفاده جهت آشنایی هر چه بیشتر دوستان محترم بدین شرح است:

Course Description:
This is a participative course in which students are expected to contribute and take responsibility for their own learning.  The learning environment will emphasise students working together to produce short essays (up to 1000 words) and case study reports for presentation in class.  These presentations will be scheduled well in advance and the topics will be examples of the questions used in the final test.  The essays will be critique by other students and then distributed to everyone in the class.

 Learning Outcomes:
The aim is to introduce students to the content and methods of current research in the field of Entrepreneurship defined to include new venture formation, the growth of small businesses, and relatively new area of 'corporate' entrepreneurship.  The objective is to make students conversant with the literature to the point where they could identify viable research opportunities that would advance understanding of the field.

Grading:
Marks are not normally standardised in this course.  Grading follows the Department of Management's Academic Policies for Undergraduate Courses.  Cut-points used to convert marks to final grades may vary slightly and therefore 50% may not translate into a passing grade.
