    by Routledge

    This insightful edited collection brings new insights and a novel approach to entrepreneurship education by situating findings within the Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, exploring pedagogies associated with both academic and professional entrepreneurship to further the field.

    Drawing on experiences and best practices within the CEE countries (such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia), the book takes a comparative slant and addresses the call for a pragmatic and critical approach to entrepreneurship pedagogy, offering a systematic review of effective methods and tools introduced at various levels of entrepreneurship education and across disciplines. Highly cross-disciplinary and spanning all levels of formal education, the contributions address long-associated challenges to entrepreneurship education such as the advancement of an entrepreneurship pedagogy that teaches both for, and through, entrepreneurship, as well as difficulties surrounding the teaching of an entrepreneurial mindset, competence, and the collation of knowledge in the field more widely.

    This volume will be of pivotal interest to researchers, scholars, and post-graduate students in the fields of entrepreneurship education, international and comparative education, and pedagogy more broadly. Those specifically looking at the development of education in the CEE countries will also find the book valuable.
