Chapter 10: Innovative approaches to entrepreneurship education at FLAME University in India
Entrepreneurship and startups have recently increased significantly in India. The government has initiated several measures to boost the startup ecosystem. Most universities in India now offer entrepreneurship as an introductory course. Because most courses at the university level in India are theoretical and classroom-oriented, entrepreneurship is also taught more theoretically. Yet, entrepreneurship education is a practical discipline and cannot be taught in or restricted to the classroom and lecture. Hence, the pedagogical approach of teaching needs to shift from passive learning to more experiential approaches, which is the domain of andragogy and heutagogy, as opposed to pedagogy. FLAME University in Pune, India, has transitioned from the pedagogical approach to andragogical and heutagogical approaches in its series of entrepreneurship courses. This chapter describes the innovative approaches used at FLAME University in entrepreneurship education.
