Technology and Entrepreneurship Curriculum in UK Universities

A one-day workshop for university educators and professionals working in software and computing disciplines (including games and media) and in enterprise and entrepreneurship teaching and learning. The workshop is also valuable for staff working in knowledge transfer, innovation and incubation support. The event is hosted by Microsoft and NCGE in association with Agitavi, New Zealand and supported by the HEA Subject Centre for Information and Computing Sciences.

The purpose of the seminar is to:

  • Explore the state of technology and entrepreneurship curriculum in the UK and how they are related
  • Launch the online Software Entrepreneurship for Students Curriculum
  • Share tools and tips for teaching and supporting student entrepreneurship across the computing disciplines

Technology changes every aspect of our lives. This creates immense opportunity for entrepreneurship. Many young people studying in computing disciplines may not be aware of these opportunities not have the tools to support them. Students in enterprise and entrepreneurship subjects may not be aware of the opportunities available to them through technology and software developments. The UK launch of Microsoft’s online tool provides a solution for both communities and is a valuable addition to educators and professional staff in computing, creative and business and management areas.

Who is it for?
University academics in computing, software design and games media; enterprise and entrepreneurship teaching and learning staff; non-teaching university professionals working in knowledge transfer, enterprise support, incubation and innovation.  Representatives from Microsoft Business Partners.

Outcomes:

  • Launch of the Microsoft Software Entrepreneurs Curriculum to the higher education community;
  • Opportunity for networking between universities and communities engaged in supporting both computing and software developments, and enterprise and entrepreneurship;
  • Delegates updated on latest technology developments
