Call out to Ontario Schools!
This coming September, Wilfrid Laurier University‘s Social Innovation and Venture Creation (SIVC) researchers will launch a two-phased research study and are actively recruiting other colleges and universities from Ontario and other parts of Canada to collaborate with.
SIVC researchers are interested in documenting and better understanding how social innovation and social entrepreneurship skills are being taught, as well as the characteristics and pathways of students who participate in social innovation and social entrepreneurship courses, programs, and extra-curricular activities.
- Part one of the project is a study of pedagogical approaches to social innovation and social entrepreneurship and includes analysis of available documentation (e.g. website content, course syllabi), and in-person interviews with a minimum of three social innovation and social entrepreneurship leaders.
- Part two of the project is a survey of students participating in social innovation and social entrepreneurship programming, and includes a survey package that will take approximately 20-30 minutes.
If your school is interested in participating, or you’d like to know more, contact Carrie Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
