STREAM: ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION IN AFRICA

STREAM: ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION IN AFRICA

Africa relies for its future prosperity and development on the education of entrepreneurial graduates and is therefore experiencing a high demand for Entrepreneurship Education (EE) to provide potential entrepreneurs with the motivation, skills and knowledge to start an enterprise. Yet, embedding EE in universities, NGOs and schools is only at an early stage. This stream invites papers highlighting the implementation of EE within local context, especially on but not limited to good case practices – especially in policy – of entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurship educator training as well as entrepreneurial universities.

All papers submitted to this stream will be considered for publication in the Special Issue of the Journal of Small Business and Entrepreneurship titled ‘An African Entrepreneurship? Embedding Enterprise Education in Africa’ to be published in February 2020.

The following themes are of interest, however all submissions that address the substantive area are welcome:

  1. African-centric pedagogy / andragogy / heutagogy and assessment methods
  2. Networks of governance
  3. Enterprise Education for youth, women, poverty-alleviation, post-conflict development
  4. Indigenous entrepreneurship and participatory pedagogies
  5. Policy-support
  6. Programme and curriculum best-practice case studies, especially on, but not limited to good case practices, of Enterprise Education, Entrepreneurship educator training as well as entrepreneurial universities.

We welcome papers from any methodology and strongly encourage collaboration between colleagues in developing and developed economies. Papers must be theoretically informed and may take the form of original empirical papers or rigorously analysed, best-practice case studies.

If you have any queries or suggestions please contact Andrea Lane (a.lane2@newcastle.ac.uk). For panel and paper submissions please follow the instructions on the website  http://www.asauk.net/call-for-papers-and-panels-asauk-2018-now-open/
