o Each workshop uses a practitioner tool to facilitate hands-on play, creativity and innovation, novel ways of thinking and planning for the group multi-media project.

you to draw upon thinking (theorizing) and workshop practices of creative and critical approaches to E&E:
Please see attached guidance sheet for further details.
o Show evidence of entrepreneurial learning process as social and looking at the views of others and considering alternative viewpoints (e.g. theorizing), and display an awareness that taking on board alternative perspectives may be of benefit in making decisions about more effective future behaviour and actions?
What does “becoming” enterprising mean to you, discussing what you have learnt and then offering examples from how your practices have changed from the beginning of E&E

Instructions for submission
You must submit your assignment before the stated deadline by electronic submission through ATLAS. You are advised to always check your work through ATLAS before the deadline to see what is visible to your tutor.
Some template assets are set to ‘auto submit’ when you collect the template or workbook and will notify you of this when you first save a copy for yourself. As long as you do not delete or remove your original you do not need to manually ‘share for assessment’ these templates.
Please ensure you allow sufficient time to share your assignment for assessment, noting that the system may become busier and slower as the deadline approaches. The submission deadlines are absolute and based on UWE server time, therefore you are strongly advised to submit work well ahead of the deadline dates to avoid situations where penalties could be incurred. It is recommended you ‘share for assessment’ as soon as you begin the assignment as all saved changes will be reflected in ATLAS. Effectively your submission in ATLAS is a link to your asset not a copy until the deadline passes at which point a fixed copy of your asset is stored for marking.
Late submission in the 24 hours following the deadline will be accepted but the assignment mark will be capped at 40%. Submissions after 24 hours will not be accepted. PLEASE NOTE that any changes made within the late window to an asset already shared for assessment will mark the submission as late. For full guidance on online submission through Blackboard see following link, though you are not submitting through Blackboard some of the general submission guidance may be useful:
Submissions of coursework by any other method (including a paper copy, on disc, by email or by fax) are NOT permissible for this assignment unless specifically agreed by the Module Leader in advance of the submission date.
Before the deadline, please ensure the following:
o That you have proof read you work thoroughly to ensure your work is presented appropriatelyo That you have addressed all the required elements of the assessment
o That you have referenced in accordance with the guidance provided
o That you have addressed each of the marking criterion
o That the submission is in the correct format – you may not be able to share to the assignment space if the asset is not the correct type.
We will mark 5 separate portfolio activities of the milestones in evidencing the understanding of the role of enterprise and entrepreneurship in practice, creativity and in society, and the importance of enterprise and entrepreneurship to their future career and life aspirations. These learning and probing “portfolio activities” complement the lectures and document the entrepreneurial design process, and the adaptations that were made (or not) as a result of it. There are 5 key activity dates:

Portfolio activity 1
14 February (Pass: Fail – 10%)
Portfolio activity 2

Portfolio activity 3

Portfolio activity 5
Activities 1-4 activities are submitted and marked to deadlines throughout the E&E module evidencing each milestone of the entrepreneurial design process (See below). These portfolio activities are marked as either Pass: Fail (each 10%. Meaning: 40% of overall portfolio mark showing that it is crucial that you actively participate in these sessions).
