Making learning accessible: Multicultural learning using social media to run trans-national entrepreneurial “pop-up businesses”

Learning in multicultural contexts can compound teaching difficulties for the educator and students when introducing creative and experiential elements into the syllabus and pedagogy of an Entrepreneurship class. Having students from traditionally risk-averse cultures provides many opportunities for diverse points of view and innovative problem solving approaches, while also presenting potential risks if events don’t go according to plan.
