Abstract

Innovation Challenges is a new course offered for the whole Tampere university community by Y-kampus entrepreneurship and innovation services, for the first time in fall 2019. Innovation Challenges offers practice-based cases that allow students to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills in a team. Learning is anchored in team coaching pedagogy, learning-by-doing attitude and entrepreneurial mindset. In this paper, we first describe the evolution that created a course called Innovation Challenges. Then, we describe course organization and the six challenges that student teams are currently solving.
