There is a number of this Book 4 remaining in the remarkably successful first edition series, Enterprising Ways to teach and Learn. The book describes how to facilitate real-life projects.
The book can complement the 3 books of the second edition.
Enterprise Projects are like Challenges, except that students come up with ideas for the real-life undertakings and negotiate the curriculum outcomes with the teacher. In other words, besides carrying out the undertaking, students have responsibility for generating the idea, designing the structure, identifying the curriculum outcomes and providing evidence for assessment.
Book Four contains
Snapshot accounts of enterprise projects.
A Process Guide for setting up, running and winding down projects.
An Advice Section on each stage of facilitating a project, including:
– generating and appraising possibilities
– negotiating project learning contracts
– operating, producing, servicing & marketing
– forming groups and organisations
– planning and preparing undertakings – assessing and debriefing.
An Appendix of Samples covering legal guidelines, job descriptions and application forms, funding systems, grant forms and approval systems, project learning contracts, checklists for running support workshops
"This is a remarkable series of publications... remarkable for the discipline and depth it brings to experiential learning, which so often degenerates into learning by discovery or chance. Kearney’s approach to education is at the very forefront."
