Implementing a Digital Badge in Entrepreneurship Education at Dundalk Institute of Technology

The Irish National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education has developed a Digital Badge in Entrepreneurship Education (Figure 1). The Badge’s main purpose is the professional development of higher education teachers towards teaching entrepreneurship.

This badge is based on the 2016 EntreComp competence framework that understands entrepreneurship as a key competence that individuals and groups can apply across all spheres of life. EntreComp defines entrepreneurship as to “act upon opportunities and ideas and transforming them into value for others”.
