ENTREPRENEURIAL EDUCATION - EXPLORING TEACHERS’ CREATIVITY IN 11 COUNTRIES
Keywords:creativity, entrepreneurial skills, innovativeness, teachers
Creativity is considered as one of the main entrepreneurial skills next to leadership and risk taking. Teachers as role models are becoming more aware of the changes needed within themselves and their classrooms and precisely their perception of importance of creativity and innovativeness (C&I) in teaching is the focus of this research. The views of teachers (N=149) from 11 countries (Germany, UK, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovenia, Portugal, Ireland, France, Spain and Albania) are researched and compared. The theoretical background of the paper explains the connection between creativity and entrepreneurial education and provides a sound rationale for reinforcing and emphasizing creativity as a needed entrepreneurial skill in both teachers and students. The findings of this paper will hopefully encourage teachers to participate in teacher training in C&I and can help raise teachers’ awareness of the obstacles to C&I in classrooms across Europe.
