Questions we care about
• How do different pedagogical teaching approaches in entrepreneurship education construct learning outcome when comparing the underlying pedagogical models?
• Where can unidentified fields and correlations of pedagogical insights between the approaches of lean startup, design thinking, and experiential learning be identified?
• How can new concepts of learning models, taking lean startup, design thinking and experiential learning approaches into account, be developed in entrepreneurship education?

This 3e conference paper begins as a conceptual paper highlighting the theories and underlying learning models behind three pedagogical approaches within entrepreneurship education, namely lean startup, design thinking and experiential learning. The paper builds this knowledge framework in order to set the design for an empirical investigation of the proposed topics through a later case study.

The research project will develop empirical qualitative data to further elaborate the discussion. Qualitative interviews with five entrepreneurship educators from three educational institutions will shape the platform for condensation of meaning and new knowledge valuable for research in entrepreneurship education. In-depth interviews will provide data to be analyzed in combination with vignette methods that seeks to test the following research question: How do entrepreneurship educators reflect upon the three approaches lean startup, design thinking, and experiential learning, and what facilitators and barriers can be identified to these approaches?
