Abstract: 作为一种新的教育理念,高校创新创业教育的核心在 于激发学生的创新精神,提升创新创业素养,让学生面向未来 获得可持续发展.这些都是当下核心素养教育的重要内容。课 程是创新创业教育的重点实施领域,核心素养理念对课程观 念、内容结构、教学方法等方面有重要的指导意义。然而,目前 我国创新创业课程建设中仍存在课程目标不清晰、课程内容同 质化、课程体系简单化、教学方式形式化等问题。因此,高校 应基于核心素养理念设计分层分类的课程体系,依托现有学科 课程整合课程内容,探索情境体验式教学方式,推进我国创新 创业教育课程建设。

Therefore, the design of lamination and classification course system should be based on the key competencies, and rely on the existing subject courses to integrate curriculum content, explore situational teaching methods, promote the course construction of innovation and entrepreneurship education in China.

Journal of Jahrom University of Medical Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Introduction:The objective of this study was to survey needs assessment for the required and proposed educational courses in order to promote entrepreneurship and job finding among the students and graduates in universities of South Iran.Material and Methods:The present descriptive–analytic research was conducted using a questionnaire containing 19 subjective questions for needs assessment. The sample size included 300 students and 200 graduates (and employed GPs) of Shiraz, Bushehr, Yasooj and Bandarabbas universities of medical sciences selected randomly. Questionnaires were filled by the participants. Results:The results showed that there was a significant difference between theoretical education and job requirements. Also, there was a significant difference between students and the employed graduates regarding learning a foreign language. The students group was more familiar with the global systems of the medical courses than the graduates; this could be attributed to the change in educational structure as well as technological revolution. Regarding innovation and creativity, the difference was significant between the two groups. Group A does more teamwork than group B; as to the introduction of the job, the difference was significant between the two groupsConclusion:The findings indicated that negligence and lack of needs assessment have kept the students away from practical work and encounter with the related problems. The students generally believe that employment could be gained through nepotism in the first place and based on practical and scientific capabilities in the second place. This problem could be solved through educational courses for teaching computer and language skills, management, etc. Moreover, by establishing an organization for monitoring the employment process, disappointment among the students and academic staff especially physicians could be eliminated.

The Role of Universities in Technology Entrepreneurship
Jonathan Wells
Technology Innovation Management Review , 2012,
Abstract: This article discusses the role that universities play in the process of technology entrepreneurship, where entrepreneurship is restricted to the process of launching and supporting small and medium-sized technology-based businesses. The article briefly discusses a few of the issues that influence a university’s participation in the process of entrepreneurship. Although there is no “one-size-fits-all” model, the article discusses various ways that Canadian universities may help entrepreneurs, including contract research, the provision of business parks, and sensible handling of intellectual property issues. Finally, the article suggests that the return on “investment”, for both the university and the province, is a difficult thing to measure – nevertheless, participation in the entrepreneurship process may result in some tangible and intangible benefits for both parties.

Creative Education (CE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2011.21008
Abstract: This study presents the concept of innovation pedagogy, which is a pedagogical approach developed for the universities of applied sciences. Innovation pedagogy emphasises efficient learning and the institution’s external impact on regional development. It is based on customer-oriented and multi-field needs of working life; integrates applied research and development and entrepreneurship with education in a flexible way; and promotes regional and international networking. This approach is clearly wider than the traditional individual-based learning, because it emphasises group-based and networked learning to promote innovations in working life.
