PIETE Outputs

In the course of 3 years, the PIETE Project will develop:

PIETE Awareness Test Center will provide means to assess EE conception of ITE educators, with the end goal of raising their awareness for the added-values of EntreComp for the teaching profession

Partners will develop a sound methodological framework that allows for a coherent mapping of the involved pre-service teacher training institution

This output focusses on overcoming existing legacies in the understanding of EE of pre-service teacher educators. By building upon the results generated by the application of the PIETE Test Center a set of instruments that acquaint ITE educators with entrepreneurial competence development as understood by EntreComp will be developed.

This output will develop, test and compare innovative teaching methodologies (i.e. multidisciplinary curricula, learner-centered, real problem based, etc.) that can be used to enhance entrepreneurial competence and mind-set development within higher education pre-service teacher development programs.

This output will generate a profound empirical foundation on how ITE educators in Europe assess entrepreneurial competences.

The objective of this output is to identify and gather good practices and publish them in a book that will be made available free of charge.
