Enterprise & Innovation in Practice
The Enterprise and Innovation in Practice Module is a new undergraduate module which will run for the first time from January 2012. It offers final year undergraduate students the opportunity to work on a project of their own choosing or within an organisation on a ‘real world’ challenge or opportunity the organisation is facing. The organisation could be of any size in the private business, social enterprise, public, community or voluntary sector. Students will be placed in innovation teams and work together with academic staff and practitioners to identify enterprising and innovative solutions for the challenge/opportunity faced by the organisation.
Each project (organisation) will be allocated two or three teams and the project will run over twelve weeks from week commencing 23rd January to week commencing April 23rd. The organisation will be asked to prepare a one page proposal, present the challenge to students and then provide feedback to students along the way and attend final presentations. Students will be evaluated both on the quality of their final recommendations and the interactions with the organisation in the process. The aim is to make this a rewarding experience for both the students and the organisation, tutors will be working with both to ensure that the process goes smoothly and is mutually beneficial.
