Bringing entrepreneurial methods into the scientific classroom
[L'introduction d'une approche entrepreneuriale dans un cours de sciences fondamentales]
This research presents a qualitative study of action learning at École Polytechnique, a top engineering school in France. Though existing literature has theorized on methods and applications of action learning, notably within business and management, this work explores the use of such techniques in the context of fundamental science education. As a case study, we explore Polytechnique’s “Le Projet Scientifique Collectif” (PSC) using in-depth interviews with a variety of key actors involved in an action-based program. We conclude our study by suggesting areas of future investigation using discussion points that explore barriers and opportunities of successful collaborative student projects.
