Enterprise Education Group for Impact and Research (EEGIR)

Enterprise Education Group for Impact and Research (EEGIR), led by Dr. Sally Jones, is currently conducting a research project to look at how teachers and students use a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) to support enterprise education in further education (post -16) contexts. The study is particularly concerned with how this style of teaching and learning can be used to develop enterprise skills (communication, networking, leadership) within an academic module.This study is being conducted as we have developed a new MOOC for enterprise education in this context. We are interested in understanding what students and teachers learn from using it and/or what skills are developed by students as a result.The MOOC is hosted online through Futurelearn: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/starting-a-business
