An exciting Erasmus+ project kicked-off in Ireland in November 2017, aiming to promote entrepreneurship education using challenge-based learning. “T-Challenge” brings together 6 partners from Latvia, Portugal, Romania, Ireland, Cyprus and Bulgaria who will work for the project development and implementation until October 2019.

By the project completion, partners aim to have developed and pilot-tested a webquest platform with webquests in areas such as entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, critical thinking, social impact and circular economy, a complete Curriculum for a Train-of-Trainers course, as well as a guideline to successfully implement T-Challenge project results in other organisations across Europe.

Overall, the T-Challenge consortium aims to:

  • promote entrepreneurship education through the use of alternative pedagogical resources using ICT, at the same time as using challenge based learning;
  • allow entrepreneurial learning in all sectors of education including non-formal learning;
  • challenge educators to develop their own webquests in an interdisciplinary way and share them with peers;
  • promote a cross-curricular approach to subjects and, consequently, a collaborative work from educators;
  • and foster an entrepreneurial spirit in European citizens, able to research, select, analyze, organise and present information.

“Reinforcing entrepreneurial education in schools, vocational education institutions and universities will have a positive impact on the entrepreneurial dynamism of our economies” (Entrepreneurship Education: a Guide for Educators", EC 2013) and the T-challenge partners are committed to work collaboratively towards this direction through the use of the teaching methodology of webquest.
