Entrepreneurship

Linking entrepreneurship and successful learners includes ways of looking at the world, which actively support entrepreneurship and opportunity recognition, that includes future orientation, reflection, optimism, self efficacy, Dweck's Growth Mind-set.

Reflective learning is very closley associated with Dweck’s concept of growth mind-set and the willingness to take all consequences both good and bad as feedback, looking at the data objectively for new understanding. All the mindset activities above support reflective learning.  A key feature of reflection is the ability and willingness to review something, often several times, and take new insights each time.

Key questions to support reflective learning

  • What else could I have done?
  • How could I have done this differently? 
  • If I had done it differently, what would be the likely outcome (in tangible, specific behavourial terms)?

Here is a link to a document on reflective writing developed and published by the University of Portsmouth that is an effective tool to use as an individual or team assignment.
