This page provides an overview on learning and teaching resources used in the online course Social Entrepreneurship for Local Change.

For a structural overview of our online course have a look inside our Course Manual.

Besides the main learning resources presented on this page we also provided a collection of further resources to deepen the understanding of social entrepreneurship. You'll find those resources on our Resource and Literature Page. Furthermore, our Glossary provides an overview on the main terms of social entrepreneurship used in our course. Last but not least, the Case Study Page does not only list all the case studies that we produced for the course but also those that previous students have self-selected and presented.

Phase A: Identifying Challenges and Setting Goals

During this phase the students critically reflect their local context and identify challenges (problems, shortcomings and change potential). They select one challenge and analyse the cause-effect relationships of this challenge from multiple perspectives. They actively include input from students of other disciplines to get a more profound understanding of the situation.
