Chapter 9: The conceptual contribution of education to research on entrepreneurship education

Paula Kyrö


By building a bridge between the conceptual discussion of education science and entrepreneurship, this chapter demarcates the role of entrepreneurship education as a form of pedagogy and its connection to a progressive movement. As a form of pedagogy, entrepreneurship education changes the idea of the human being, brings action-orientation, autonomy and interplay between risk and responsibility to the centre of the learning process. It also challenges the previous ontological, epistemological and in some respect axiological bases of earlier learning paradigms and presents new ideas for pedagogy and didactics. Thus, seen from an educational perspective, entrepreneurship can now be perceived as a form of pedagogy that renews the previous learning paradigms and furthers educational institutional practices.
