This thesis introduces the field of social entrepreneurship from an educator’s perspective, and explores how students can best be prepared to embark on further work in the field. A review of the literature considers social entrepreneurship within the context of learning, and how students' learning processes can best be supported to encourage the development of self-directed learning strategies. The proposed curriculum outline synthesizes experiential learning opportunities for core concepts of entrepreneurial action from the literature review, and describes how teachers might guide students’ awareness as they move through these experiences.
