This issue may challenge your vision of entrepreneurship and inspire you to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in your classroom or school, to the delight of your students!

We asked experts for a definition of enterprise education. Here's what Sophie Jalbert and Matthias Pepin, from Université Laval's Chaire de leadership en enseignement sur le développement de l'esprit d'entreprendre et de l'entrepreneuriat, and authors in this issue, have to say.

Enterprise education is:

  • A pedagogical approach that encourages initiative and aims to turn ideas into action. It involves developing skills (such as organization, creativity and reflexivity) and attitudes (including self-confidence, team spirit and tolerance of ambiguity) that are useful in a variety of life situations.
  • It applies to all school subjects and shapes the whole student. To achieve this, it relies on a variety of pedagogical practices, including action-oriented projects, which enable teachers to adapt to the diversity of students, creating success for all.
  • It provides a meaningful context for understanding the relevance of school learning in the real world. This enables memorable projects, active learning and, ultimately, impactful experiences that can light a spark in students' lives.

  • This issue explores the many facets of enterprise education. We've invited experts in this field to share their knowledge, inspirational examples and best practices. We hope that the content will guide you in implementing concrete and engaging projects for your students. These entrepreneurial projects are characterized by their ability to inspire perseverance, motivation, and pride among students and adults alike!

    In a constantly changing world, enterprise education has become an asset. The goal is not to turn young people into entrepreneurs, but rather to help them develop skills such as creativity, problem-solving, communication and collaboration. These skills are essential for thriving in the 21st century. As a result, they will become more aware of the world around them, and better prepared to actively engage in the social, environmental and economic challenges of today and tomorrow.
