IVLP Impact Award Project: ESC4PE ITB - Entrepreneurship Summer Camp for Problem-Based Learning Education ITB

The Entrepreneurship Summer Camp for Problem-Based Learning Education (ESC4PE ITB) project organized a short course program in Bandung, Indonesia. The camp courses used collaborative learning to solve business problems experienced by startups using the problem-based learning model. The problem-based learning model helped students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity and communication skills.

395 students worked with 53 mentors, 45 coaches and 8 partner startups for extended periods of time to gain new knowledge and investigate and solve an authentic, complex and real-world problem. Each participant team worked closely with the startups to pose questions, find resources, and apply information. Additionally, each team submitted proposal presentations so startups could gain new insight into solutions for businesses disrupted by Covid-19. Students from all backgrounds were able to utilize the information they learned to integrate technology and innovation into their proposed ideas at the end of the project.

"Many networks with people with different backgrounds and abilities make us further motivated to study harder." - Project Participant
