Creativity Based Learning Framework

Each learning process is a journey and in order to better illustrate the progress each individual will undergo, SMART Start-up has adapted Lumpkin’s (2004) Creativity-Based Model of Opportunity Recognition into a navigation chart that presents the focal steps of the program through a logical process to guide participants through their sustainable entrepreneurship journey.

To provide a comprehensive understanding of the concepts of Sustainable Entrepreneurship, learners need to be motivated on a personal level. At the same time, for SMART Start-up participants to develop and refine entrepreneurial skills the framework offers both theoretical learning opportunities and practical tools.

The learning process that occurs within each module of the framework is the result of a progression of concepts of analysis-activity-reflection that is intended to provide a higher and deeper level of understanding as the program develops.
